Joke April 2, 2014

Had I managed to successfully stay on the 5-minute plank schedule, yesterday, April 1, would have been day 30, the day of my crowning achievement. This date is appropriate given that the possibility of me ever holding a 5-minute plank seemed from the outset a joke, and perhaps I was a fool to glance at the pace of the buildup and think “Well, maybe…”

The good news is that since day 18 I have managed to continue with the 1-minute plank. It’s not really getting any easier. But it’s not really getting any harder, either.

It’s the longest 60 seconds of my day. And watching the stopwatch rack up tenths of seconds, I begin to understand those Olympic millisecond-difference finishes as real time.

I am very impressed you’re doing a 1-minute plank every day. You’re inspiring me, and once I’m able (some complications in the way at the moment), I intend taking the plank schedule, getting as far as I can, and then doing what you’re doing.

Good luck! I had to take a 2-day break this weekend, and yesterday’s minute was still hard. I’ll look forward to hearing how you do when you’re ready!

Funny how time shrinks and expands.
