I have a Twitter account - @That_girl_lola - and one of my friends over there- Anda at Leaving Fatville was talking about a #plankathon being put on by YumYucky.com - well, I got curious. People are posting videos of themself doing Planks (in various positions) and challenging to see how long they can hold it for. I was going to be brave and say I could go for 5 minutse- but then someone up and did 6 minutes....
I'm super competitive even when I don't have to be- so I jokingly said I would be going for 10 minutes...well, the internets being what they are- - - people trying to get me to do it...I said I'd try...a 10 minute plank with a fitness ball for assistance.
I did it! So excited!
I also had worked out earlier in the day- I did 20 minutes on the spin bike and 20+ mins of strenght training-focus on the back.
If you don't watch the whole video- that's cool, I have to post it though ...a matter of pride.
