I’m going to put a challenge out there for everyone. I’ve already made it to certain friends. Now I’m opening it to you.
For the next year (or one year from whenever you decide to start), do the Five2K challenge:
- Write 2k
- Run/ walk 2k
- Edit 2k
- Read 2k
- Eat 2k calories (2000 calories)
Do this daily for one year (52 weeks). Tag your progress with #Five2K.
Miss a day? Don’t stress. Make up your 2k on another day. 2k walking or running is only 1.29 miles or so. Do a little extra one day and “bank” it toward another day.
Didn’t write enough? Have a marathon writing session and get in 10k at some point. Same with editing.
2k words is, roughly, eight pages, although your average will vary.
Do it for the fun of it and as a way to push yourself. Do it for the cool name.
Are you with me?
