Manic Monday/Plank Challenge

Whew! Where did the weekend go? It seems like I blinked and it was gone :( Other than being too short, it was a great weekend. It started with a fun 4.5 mile run with my Pathways group. It was a large group, about 30 runners. We started at our Fleet Feet Tulsa Blue Dome location and ran to Swan Lake via the trail. For some in the group, it was a distance PR. It was a little bit hilly and the humidity was insane, but everyone was able to finish the run without any difficulties. After the run, my husband and I were en route to our happy place at the lake. I know that summer is winding down and that makes me very sad. I'm looking forward to fall, but I'm determined to eke out every last little drop of summer that I can!! We enjoyed soaking up some sun and visiting with friends. I'm still blogging from my phone app which is beyond annoying and inconvenient. They are scheduled to come out and upgrade my service, so hopefully I'll be back to normal as far as that is concerned. Tonight, we're taking the Pathways group to the track for the first time this session. I remember when I was in Pathways. I despised the track!! It was probably because I got a groin strain one night and I think that was the beginning of my IT band issues. But, the more I run, the more I find that I really don't mind track night. Then, I'm scheduled to do Focus T25 alpha cardio, but I'm thinking that I might do Insanity strength training instead. And, my plank challenge starts today!! Whatever workout I decide to do, I'm going to add my 20 second plank to the end of it. Gotta get it in when/where I can!! There's still time to join the plank challenge!! Have an awesome Monday!! Be-YOU-tiful today!! Are you joining the plank challenge??

  2. The plank challenge is SO hard!! I am up to a minute and 45 seconds, but I still feel like I'm going to die at the end of that!!

    1. The longest plank I've ever held is 1 minute. I'm hoping this will help strengthen my arms, shoulders, and chest
