From Moscow to Bangkok

So this is my second challenge, the second year I've decided to keep fit by dedicating a short time each day to stay healthy and active. My surroundings have changed somewhat as last year I was training with a backdrop of Red Square and the tail end of snow capped trees and icy paths. I decided to give that up for sunnier skies and this year I am working and training in a muggy and hot Bangkok.

Last year I cycled outside and jogged in my breaks at work. This year, at 35 degrees at midday it's just not possible so I am sticking to swimming outdoors (much more refreshing) and exercising in the gym. I'm not a huge fan of indoor exercise but being 18 floors up with a view over the city, it's not bad! I play netball for the Southerners Team in Bangkok as part of an expat league to try and stay fit as well as hopping over to Japan for skiing trips.

The beginning of my challenge is going to be tough as I am a teacher and it is the Easter holidays. I'm off to the beach and so I am going to be on a strict regime of morning exercise by the sea.

I am really excited about the challenge this year. I have managed to persuade some fellow teachers in to it with me and we're looking forward to getting going! I love to keep active and so this is a good excuse to to do so! Let's get started...
