Tomorrow marks the start of my 30 (31?) day Plank Challenge. I'm trying to start at 1 minute and just add 10 seconds per day, which means that if I'm successful I will be able to do a plank for longer than 5 minutes by the end of the month. That might be a bit over zealous so at the very least I want to be able to do a 5 minute plank (so it gives me a few "do over" days in case things don't go as planned during the next month).
I ran this morning for my mid week 30 minute running session. My legs felt tired but I tried to keep up an ok pace....
More summary pics....
I can never balance correctly and spend my time trying not to fall over rather than focusing on deep breathing and meditation.
I really think I could get more training done if I had the anti gravity treadmill device that they talk about in THIS article and video...
So today I ate a lot. ALOT. I normally have a bigger appetite on the days I run but today was a combination of that and emotional eating (work stress). I wish I wasn't an emotional eater but rather one of those people that loses their appetite when they are stressed. When you're an emotional eater you don't make the best food choices (aka the apple cinnamon croissant I had after my second lunch). Yes I said second. Anyway, we'll just pretend I'm carb loading ;)
Side note: I'm looking forward to hearing more about the upcoming running documentary "Transcend" following Wesley Korir as he trains for some major races (running events and political races alike). You can check out the trailer HERE. The film comes out in October.
Anyone else doing a 30 day challenge (wall sit or planks or any other)?
