Stats-
1 mile/8:44
Average pace- 8:43

Plank A Day
Ab Challenge Workout Week 2

Another mile PR!!!! The past few days I've run on the treadmill for the #RWRunStreak and I run much slower on the treadmill. It felt great to get outside today and just go for it!

As most of you read on my post yesterday about the Weekly Chase, one of my goals this week is to do a plank a day.  I've been seeing the hashtag for #plankaday on twitter for awhile now so I googled it to see what came up.  I found the official website for the plank a day revolution and got so excited!  I believe the plank is one of the best exercies for your core and I need that core strength as a runner.  I'm looking forward to incorporating a plank a day in my fitness life...it's something that doesn't take much time but is so effective.  My goal is to hold my plank for at least a minute this week (more if I can) to ensure I am holding it with the proper form. 

Ok so how is everyone doing with the ab challenge?  Did you make it through the first week's workout?  It was tough but it got easier each day.  The workout for week 2 has been posted...are you ready?


WOW!!!  Super hard!  I didn't even know what some of these exercises were...thank goodness for YouTube!  Do the same for yourself...if you don't know what an exercise is look it up on YouTube

Thanks sooo much to everyone for all the comments on yesterday's post!  I LOVE hearing from you and hearing about your goals!!!

QOTD:  What's the longest time you've ever held a plank?  Mine is 2:31!

  1. You are doing so good! I'm so proud of you. Looks like those 1 mile-a-days are really paying off. Keep up the good work. I bet you'll be seeing great race results with all kind of PRs this fall.
