On Sunday I ran 20 miles with dear hubby and you can read about that HERE. I did a 1:01 plank. It was hard.

On Tuesday I got up early and ran 7.0 miles at the gym. My legs were sluggish at the start so I started with an easier pace and got to my standard pace within 15 minutes. My legs were still feeling achy and I volunteered to go up and down the stairs at work every time it was needed. I was striving to get those juices flowing to flush the aches away. I did a 1:37 plank.

Yesterday didn't turn out anywhere how I planned it to be. I was going to get up early to go to the gym and slept. I decided to just go to work and get an early start with the idea I would go to the gym afterwards. I got to work and was locked out while waiting for staff...that must have overslept. Those 30 minutes of waiting irked me as they could have been good running minutes! When I left work I was feeling grouchy and headed to the gym and the entrance was blocked by utility trucks. I am sure this was only going to be a temporary thing but it was my last straw and I headed home. I hopped on my incline treadmill with the intent to get at least a good 30 minutes in only to have a little llama drama from darling daughter at 1.3 miles (less than 15 minutes). I gave up, helped her, and did my best plank to date - 2:08. Yippee! P.S. Mom took darling daughter and I out to dinner as dear hubby was working late. What a treat!

Now all this plank stuff has me wondering if it will really makes a difference. So I got crazy bold today and took a picture of my abs to document what is happening. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So here are my abs on day 10 of my #plankaday. I haven't missed a day. I try to go longer each day but that isn't always the case. But I have a minimum that I must hold the plank for at least a minute and so far I have been able to stick to that. Only time will tell.
