5 miles on the schedule today. Due to the rain and wind, I only did 3 miles but will run 5 tomorrow. Just getting out of bed was an accomplishment today. As I woke up, I'm listening to the wind howl as the rain continued to pound against the window. In the end, I was happy to get out for a run even if I cut it short. What's with this stupid weather?
So I've been doing #plankaday for about the last six weeks. Most of my plank's have been in the 1 to 3 minute range. Here's my PR that I hit a little over a week ago. I've not tried to go longer yet.
|This one almost killed me! Ha!|
And here's what I did for last weeks training:
I challenged myself to do at least a 2 minute plank each day. This week I went back to a one minute plank but, then again, I also did Yoga and Weights before I did it and a run after as well.
Some have asked whether or not I see a difference. It's only been six weeks but I can already notice a difference. No, it's not a huge difference but I can tell that my lower Abs especially are getting stronger. I'm doing this as part of my overall fitness program but, frankly, I do them to help strengthen my core so that I can run better.
I plan to keep doing these all year so we'll see if there is a difference after that amount of time. Regardless, it beats not doing them so I'll keep it up.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
