This is not an advert for Garmin watches, or in any way promoting Garmin GPS products and sports equipment, but rather saying how much I have enjoyed the ‘challenges’ that they have been running.

Since Christmas there have been various challenges set on their Facebook page (just search Garmin Australia) with activities like ‘swim 500m’ or ‘cycle 12km’ or ‘clock 10,000 steps’. You do the activity (if it suits you and you’re fit etc.) and post evidence of your achievement to the Facebook page. Then you are in the running to win various goodies – like gps watches and bike computers!

The challenges have been great fun and there is a real sense of accomplishment when I do manage to do one – although there have been plenty of days when I’ve not been in great condition (ie injured muscles or sore knees etc.) and haven’t done them.

I’ve not won anything so far. The prize is taking part, getting some exercise and having that sense of achievement! But with a few weeks to go with the current batch of March challenges there is still hope! I hope you enjoy them if you haven’t already discovered them!
