Do you plank? Over the summer, I really got into planking (again) after a long time away from it. I joined this great group via Twitter: #Planktweeps. They have helped inspire me to plank everyday and to keep on improving my times.
My first “plank comeback” time was 1:00. Since then, I have worked my way up to a 4:15 plank PR! I Cannot wait to reach a 5:00 plank. I’m kind of obsessive about keeping track of my plank times (I use an excel spreadsheet-yes I’m extreme like that). Thanks to my over the top love for my plank excel spreadsheet, I can share what my first week of planks looked like:
1:00, 1:20, 1:30, 1:35, 1:40, 1:45, 1:30
This past week‘s planks looked like this:
4:00, 2:00, 2:30, 4:08, 3:00, 4:15, 2:00
I like to go for a longer plank one day and take it a little easier the next day. This is my plan for plank success! Once in a while, life happens and I only have time for a quick plank, but I make sure no matter how long, I get it in for the day! One time I didn’t get my plank in for the day and #PlankPolice caught me and called me out (no joke)! It was awful! Never again.
Usually Brendan is around and is lucky enough to be designated my plank photographer and cheerleader. However, sometimes he’s not around and I have to capture proud moments myself.
My pups are my other cheerleaders. During my latest Plank PR, September (my greyhound) sat right next to me the whole time. He’s all about staying fit!
