I was seeing the #plankaday tweets for…well, for awhile now. So, tonight, decided to DO it. Jake decided he would try it, too. Of course, he thought I meant “plank” as in the internet picture phenomenon of “planking”. So, after demonstrating a “proper” plank, we broke out the yoga mats and set the stopwatch on the phone.
The first try, I think I got to about 45 seconds, but Sparks felt the need to sniff my phone mid-way through and the stopwatch went off the screen.
We decided to give it another try - 30 seconds for both! Not too shabby.
I should also mention I went for a short 2-miler beforehand. My legs were a bit sore from yesterday’s WOD, so I needed to work out the soreness. Mission accomplished! Jake also came along, but didn’t do much actual running. More talking/walking, and did not make it the total distance. It’s a start - I’ve been trying to get him out there.
Now…back to helping him with his math homework. Wish us both luck.
