Saturday! Time for parkrun, or volunteering, or getting out for a long run… or not feeling 100% and the weather being lousy and just about managing a 30 second plank before bed. You chose.
Even shorter than yesterday. 10 leg lifts on the stairs on my way to bed. Yawn.
Day 18. Um. Think I managed a 60 second plank. That’s it.
As today was a day off from work, I had planned a day doing lots of useful stuff. This included a brisk run straight after breakfast to get the day started well.
Sadly, reality meant that I enjoyed a lazy lie-in, and when I finally thought I might pop out for a run, the onset of a hail shower soon dissuaded me to put it off until tomorrow.
So 30 leg lowers before bed it was, and the promise to get out for a run after work, in the dark, on my own, tomorrow. Yeah right!
So, buoyed up by the success of yesterday’s long run, obviously today was going to be another Janathon success!
In a parallel universe, after yesterday’s long run, I was so pooped I could only attempt a plank, and only hold it for 45 seconds. Which do you think was the version that actually happened? !
Yay! Saturday! A day of lie-ins, trips to town, and dinner out.
Oh and panicky late-night planks because I’d forgotten about Janathon until I was just about to crawl into bed. That was a close call!
I can’t believe I still have this sniffly cold, but I do. So still taking it easy, with a 70 second plank.
Time is flying by, my WordPress app is misbehaving so although I have been doing something that can be categorised as exercise every day, my blog posts haven’t been keeping up.
So anyway, day 10 was more lower legs lifts. Just 20, just before bed, but done.
Short exercise, short blog post.
Day 8 – 20 leg lowers .
Quick Saturday Janathon – more leg lowers. Since my (ahem) “lower abs” are in need of attention, and since this exercise strengthens your lower back as well, this seems like a good one to do.
And so quick as well!
