Default Walktober Challenge

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 would love to join your challenge. It would be very good for me. How bout i sign up for "healthy walktober" and aim for 730 minutes. That is a great idea, i am excited to see how many minutes i actually get in. I try to do 30 minutes 6 days a week on the ellipitical. I have never kept track of a whole month before though. I have always been interested in those who could, so lets see how we do. Thanks.

Kellie, you might be better off posting a note in the "chicks up for a challenge forum" about your walktober group.

I already try to walk as much as possible. I have no clue how many minutes I spend at it, but I log between 4.5 and 6.5 miles most days. I didn't get out to the park today, but will go again tomorrow. Yesterday, I did intervals and ran/walked between each new song I was listening to. I ended up running over 2.8 miles altogether, and ran/walked a total of 6.5. I'm striving for a goal of getting that 6.5 every time I get to the park and trying to get there at least 5 days a week. It's just not always practical with the weather and other errands needing done. At least now I have a weather shield for the stroller, so a little bit of rain isn't going to hurt...except give me a muddy stroller to put in the car. LOL

Kellie: This sounds like just what I need. I don't want to select which Walktober minutes I'll do because I might be setting myself up for failure. I'm just a beginner walker, but I'll use the rest of Sept. to train for my challenge and I'll post my minutes seeking to get better each time out. Thanks for inviting me!
