5-Minute Plank? Challenge Accepted!

When I turned 29 last month I put together a 30 Before 30 list of things I wanted to accomplish over the next year. One category was a list of fitness challenges that included a 5-minute plank. I do a 15-minute core workout everyday so last night I thought I might give this one a try and see if I couldn’t knock it out on my first try. Mission accomplished. I held steady – well, slightly shaky by the end – for all five minutes! Here’s to checking the first thing off my list!

  1. Geez. I can barely make it a minute. Granted, I do it two days a week and hate it, so…

    If your eerily-similar-to-mine PRs improve more than mine do this year, I’ll be asking you for your core workout. 🙂

    • Haha, my physical therapist promised a stronger core would help keep me injury free and everything I read says it’ll give me killer PRs. I’d settle for injury free, but am hoping for some killer PRs too, and will absolutely share my core workout if it happens! 🙂
