For the month of September, I’ve been attempting the 30-Day Plank Challenge , and for the past 11 days, I’ve really been pushing myself each day to complete it.
Today the challenge has us moving to 90-second planks, which I just attempted, and I couldn’t hold it past 65 seconds, and that was torturous enough. In looking at the calendar and seeing how the time ramps up, I’ve come to the decision that this challenge is not for me right now.
Some might say I’m giving up. I say I’m realizing my own limitations and making a conscious choice to let myself out of a challenge that is, well, too challenging right now. I hate feeling inadequate, and this plank challenge has made me feel that way from the beginning. It’s just too tough.
