Default Walktober Challenge

I originally posted this in the Exercise forum, but someone pointed out that it might be better off here....

This was a great idea that is going on at my offices. The idea is to set a goal for minutes walked and then try to reach that goal in October.

The Happy Walktober
A goal of 300 minutes is about 10 minutes daily.

The Healthy Walktober
A goal of 600 minutes is about 20 minutes daily.

The Heroic Walktober
A goal of 900 minutes is about 30 minutes daily.

The Herculean Walktober
A goal of 1800 minutes is about 60 minutes daily.

As a beginner, I am aiming for the Healthy Walktober, but I would love to surpass my own expectations and have as many of you along for the ride as possible. Accountibility is key for me and tracking out daily minutes here would keep us on track. Walking, jogging, running, treadmill, whatever...

Let's just get those legs moving!!!

I am excited about this challenge too. Hopefully it will keep me on my toes...or should i say, feet. ha ha.

Kellie, you might want to sort of post about which thread you want this to be in, either "chicks up for a challenge" or the exercise thread. Just a thought. But it is cool that you opened it up in two threads, that way twice as many people see it and can join.

Looking forward to making me a ticker for this challenge.
