Website Wednesday - Konkura

Here is an interesting site that I think is worth a taking a look at.

Konkura (as in Conqueror) is a website for everyone who has a competitive spirit. You can take on colleagues , friends or total strangers from around the world in a wide range of sporting challenges.

It has running and core strength challenges and that was my interest in looking at this site but it also have a huge diversity of challenges related to cycling and  swimming so may appeal to the  triathlete. There are also some more wacky challenges such as downing a coke current leader has achieved this is 9 seconds!

For the runner there are currently challenges related to running the mile and a mile and a half. Perhaps the most interesting challenge is the The best all round runner in the world. Here you enter your best times for 6 events 100 metres, 400 m , 800 m , 1500m, 5000m and 10000m .

There are not too many running challenges at the moment but you can once registered create new ones. So fellow running bloggers  take a look at the site and  challenge me to some events!

Obviously all of this depends upon trust that everyone is honest enough not to fiddle their scores but what would be the point in that you only cheat yourself.

I also like the idea of the plank challenge and push ups in one minute.Right time to challenge my son on this not that I stand an earthly chance!

Free sign up , no costs involved just a little competitive fun . I have signed up and will enter a number of challenges as I gradually return to fitness. In particular I think a good indicator of fitness progress will be doing the mile challenge and I shall certainly give this a go though it might be quite scary how slowly I am currently running- old age, injuries too much wine beer and chocolate could have something to do with it!
