National running day, plank variations & a dog-cow
Happy National Running Day!! How are you celebrating today?
Since I ran yesterday, I have a massage scheduled and a trip to Starbucks after. Cheers!
I saw this make your own I run badge on Facebook last night and had to make one. If you want to join the fun, you can make one here. All the cool kids are doing it.
About that run, I did 3 miles around the ‘hood. It wasn’t anything to write home about. Maybe one day I’ll learn to get up earlier to beat the heat but, yeah that hasn’t happened yet.
Came home, went into clean freak mode and scrubbed the entire house. A clean house feel so good, amiright? Especially slipping into fresh, clean sheets. It’s all about the simple things.
Before I hopped in the shower, I did day 4 of the plank challenge. Bam wants to participate too, but I think he needs to work on his form.
Here’s the one from day 3 that I forgot to post.
Tina has a great post with 22 different plank variations. I’ve been doing them in the push up position, I never knew there were so many variations. I’ll definitely be changing it up to keep it interesting. Does anyone know which form, if any is the most effective?
Speaking of Bam, my buddy lays out in the sun every morning. Mike & I make fun of him because it’s so hot he comes in huffing & puffing with his tongue is hanging out but he still goes back outside. Every summer the faint spots on his belly get a lot darker. I call them his summer spots.
Here’s a picture I took while giving him a bath yesterday. I sent it to Mike titled dog-cow. Little knuckle head.
A little inspiration for today.
Fill in the blank; I run__________
Which plank form do you practice?
