Tonight we’re on TV – our hardy band of six adventurers take to the small screen for the first time after a year where they pushed outside their comfort zone and took on a whole heap of challenges that they never thought possible.
Here’s how the idea began:
Get Off The Couch! follows six people as they seek to change their lives and take on active challenges that they never thought possible. This series captures the triumph of the human spirit through determination and the desire to better oneself by capturing the personal stories, achievements, and courage of these six ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Get Off The Couch – by Athena Media for Setanta Sports is made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s Sound & Vision scheme. The six part series is free to air on Setanta Ireland from October 24th 2013 at 10:05pm.

What a stunningly special day.
Started with a bang – a 15k cycle into work, and planned 15k home. A 30k round-trip, but much needed as I’ve got my first triathlon on Saturday in Kilkenny and I don’t think I’ve prepared well enough.
The best fun was after work, when I cycled down to ATI City Kayaks near the IFSC for my Monday paddle. I had two special treats. I was joined by my Concern/Uganda buddy Vera Baker – and I got to try out my new kayak. A loan from the fantastic marathon swimmer, Fergal Sommerville, who heads off to swim the North Channel on Thursday. Best of luck Fergal.
My new kayak is yellow, and I’ve decided to call my mellow yellow craft ‘Saffron’. she ripped through the water like a shark (well, maybe a goldfish)…. and I love her already.
Good friends, good equipment, good weather and good waves…. what more could a girl need to start the week?
