Day 11 Skepticism March 13, 2014

I am three days beyond where I was in the plank challenge last time, before I was ordered to stop. For those three days, I have held a plank for 60 seconds. But it’s been a tough road. All that resting I did? I was weaker than ever when I started up again. It is a very shaky 60 seconds, and tomorrow I am supposed to do 90—the beginning, apparently, of 30-second additions til the end. Before now, the schedule has never demanded more than 15 more seconds.

If you could see me shaking at 60 seconds, you too would seriously doubt the likelihood of my making it to 300 seconds on April 1. In fact, I bet you’d be with me in wondering if I can make 90 seconds tomorrow.

My personal trainer used to torture me with planks. I could do 60 seconds (shakily), but I can’t imagine being able to increase it by 30 second increments. Good luck!

Have the Tyrannical Twins been after you?

I haven’t been to the gym in two weeks!

Maybe you should switch to limerick challenges.

I’m impressed that you are actually doing this. Will burpees be next?
