Plank Fail


April 5, 2014 by CJ

Yes, I failed my third 30 day challenge, 30 Day Plank Challenge.  I started off with little problem.  It was tough, my arms and body did shake, but I was pushing through.  Then I got sick.  Started with a head cold that felt like the flu.  It moved into my chest and there is sat.  It sat and festered in my chest until I went to my doctor and received a prescription to clear it all up.  Overall, that took about a week and a half.  Not too long, but long enough to throw me off track from completing the challenge.

I attempted to jump back into it, but I could barely hold a plank for 30 seconds.  I decided to make a slight adjustment.  A co-worker failed at the plank challenge and instead of quitting altogether she did them in sets.  Each day she did four sets of 30 second planks, not too shabby.  I was impressed.  Following her lead, I started with 2 sets of 20 second planks.  That was approximately 2 weeks ago.  Now, I’m up to 4 sets of 20 second planks!!  I’m not 100% sure what my goal is, mostly I just want a strong core.  I guess once I get there, I’ll let you know.
