Okay, so my best friend and longtime CP have decided to train for our first ever 5K marathon!
Eeeek, what have I gotten myself into?
It's one of those things where you're getting older, and you're experiencing more aches and pains, and you realize that what we do for a living is very sedentary. We sit on our bums all day long! We both realized OMG we need to make a serious change in our lives before we get too old to do so.
So we are following a beginner plan from couch potato to 5K.
There's a race right here in Syracuse in September, so follow along and wish us luck.
What does this have to do with writing you might ask? Well, at least I asked myself that :-) And I realized sometimes we get stuck in a rut with our own writing. We get off track, we procrastinate, our writing becomes flat, etc. So we must do something about it.
Start writing every day, no matter what. Then keep pushing yourself to do a bit more every day. Mix it up and write outside for a change. Something to keep your motivation up and your spirits high. Then at the end of your marathon, you'll have accomplished your goal and completed your book! Think how great you'll feel.
No more excuses!
Okay, so I'm talking as much to myself here, folks :-)
Time to get off our bums and get busy! Good luck.
