Fitness Friday

With the arrival of this glorious weather, (along with Robie coming up next week...) I have a little bit more motivation to get my butt moving.

With the knee brace thingie helping my running gumption, I have been trying to stretch out some each day. My hammys are SOOOO tight - they HURT to stretch. I'm taking it as a hint to stretch more often.

If you have signed up with FitFluential, you know they have partnered with Puma for an April Ab Challenge to plank everyday.
From here

I finally got around to starting this on the 6th where I did my first 4 planks and then did the other couple to catch up on the 7th.
From my IG earlier in the week

I have done a little extra time nearly each plank to make up for starting the challenge late.

I can't tell you the last time I did a plank, never mind a 3 minute plank, but a minute forearm plank has me shaking! I have been trying to mix it up by alternating hand to forearm or alternating side planks.

I definitely NEED this! My poor abs have been SOOOOO neglected the last couple of lazy months!

Are you doing your #FFAprilAbs planks?

What is the longest plank you can do? Once upon a time, I was awfully close to 5 minutes.

Wanna Race This Weekend, Boise?

Hey, Boise!

You wanna run or race this weekend?


Registration closes TONIGHT for the Lake Lowell Marathon.

Lake Lowell Marathon

There are only a handful of spots left for the Half and the Full.

The last couple of years, I have wanted to do this race. And the last couple of years, I have flaked out for one reason or another. I wanted to do the half this year but with the lack of training this month, it doesn't look like I will be.

BUT if you want to register, register here.

Don't forget to use code TANYA for a discount on your race fees for this race or on any of the races listed on Final Kick Events.

Are you running or volunteering this weekend?
