Get your strides on for the new season.
We hope to get more involved this year, don’t worry , it’s not hard, it’s just a little motivation to push a little bit harder and get ship shape for the cricket season ahead.
We want names in by Midday on Saturday 9 February.
Competition starts the next day.
Most of you have step counters on your mobile devices, some of you have wristband things which do the same.
Points are scored daily midnight-midnight.
One point is scored for each 5000 steps with no partial points. So if at 11pm you’re on 8800 steps get out and do a block to get the extra point.
One point is scored for each half an hour of vigorous exercise (swimming lengths, playing rugby, cycling, working out on the Granny gym in your compound…). Masturbating and left elbow bends don’t count.
You can’t get double points for an activity. i.e. if you spend half an hour doing 5000 steps on a treadmill, you don’t get two points, only one counts.
Team captains will collect stats and submit them weekly.
You’ll also be asked to submit your pre-challenge averages so we can see who is most improved.
There will be a couple of double points days, one compulsory date to be announced later and one optional for each team to decide themselves (Decide a day your team can get together and go hard)
I’ll set up a WeChat group and each team can have their own support group chat.
Final day will be Saturday 9 March, immediately prior to the season opening sixes, by which time we should all be in tip top shape.
Get into it! International Bashers are welcome to take part.
