    Having been on the "Breakup" diet recently (I lost a stone... excellent), I also impulse purchased a Swimmo swim watch and have been walking with a friend (no timetables or we won't do it )

    I'm trying to get myself fit enough to swim masters - and am also investigating this "Wild Swimming" malarkey. It's just the getting there...

    Next week eh?

    Wild swimming as in open water? If so, do it. I HATE swimming in a pool now.

    Interesting!! Ingress is almost like geo-caching combined with capture the flag. You have Goruck challenges and some of the mission banners are dozens of km in length - I had a nice 40km walk around London on Saturday doing a few.

    Edit!!

    You also get lots of badges and levels,so for example you need to walk 2500km to get the top medal for walking,etc.
