Even Though Nanowrimo Has Started, Healthy Writers Club: Couch to 5k Here We Come

I’m on a mission. Shhh. Don’t tell Beth, at least don’t tell the part of her that loves her couch.

I’ve started my very own Couch-to-5K program, inspired by Josh Clark’s article on the site, coolrunning.com.

Day #1: Saturday, Oct. 27, I walked around Lake Merritt.

Day #2: Monday, Oct. 29, I walked as part of my to and from to a meeting with a colleague in Berkeley. Our meeting was about a cool program we’re planning to launch next year for writers. Top secret for now!

Day #3: Fri, Nov. 2 {planned}. I’ll report on it next week.

I still used my cool iPhone app called Seconds Pro (their site: http://www.secondsapp.com/) to stay focused. So glad I have it. It makes the walking fun. Which where I think exercise needs to stay.

More info on the Healthy Writers Club and my fellow writers participating here: http://www.shalleemcarthur.com/p/the-healthy-writers-club.html At last count we are up to 22 writers!

And, I finally made it back to Capoiera class at Capoeira Mandinga. Yeah!

How about you? Share your exercise, both casual and otherwise, below, and let’s support each other!

  • Hey, this is a great idea! I’m a big believer in getting the mind moving by getting the body moving. When I’m not writing or editing, I’m an assistant karate instructor. I’ve found that my karate has improved my writing, and vice versa. Both pursuits require discipline, focus and dedication.

    Good luck on your couch to 5K program!
