About Tina's Plank Challenge: read this for details.
So on Monday I did 30 seconds of the plank. Yup I could not hold any longer! :P
Wednesday I attempted the 8 minute plank/core workout that she posted and I was successful at doing an abbreviated version as follows 30 seconds of elbow plank 3 up/down planks 30 seconds straight arm plank 2 up/down planks (other side) rest (oh, yeah, that was nice :) 20 plank knee crunches (for some reason that wasn't to hard for me...) and that's it. I didn't repeat it as she suggested, I was just spent!
And today, I beat monday's time: I did a 45 seconds plank!
The plank is about the only kind of exercise I can do right now, as I have a mysterious knee injury that has been bothering me since last wednesday. I have trouble bending it... so it's nice.
I can really feel my belly muscles, they are sore - a good kind of sore though:)
I like this challenge, short and sweet - just what this mama needs! :)
