Okay, this isn't running related.
Well quasi running related, because we all know the core is an important part of running. Strong cores = good form, right?
Well, my core was never ace - after my daughter and the unplanned c-section? Pfft. Sit ups and crunches? What-ever! And after my son...well...let's just say with the way he carried, my core is totally shot. Things I could after a year on my fitness journey were no longer possible. I'm struggling through a few sit ups now.
I need to fix that. I owe myself a stronger body. The core is important for so many parts of our normal daily life, and it's something I have neglected because well...running is more fun and it was zero sum equation for me. But no more.
Starting today, I'm going on a plank-streak with the inspiration coming from #plankaday on twitter. This is my accountability post and I'll be logging it in my weekly training log. Sure, one plank a day may not do a ton for my core, but it's something I can commit to. Baby steps - eventually, it will lead to something bigger.
(And hopefully a stronger core, too!)
So here's day 1. You heard it here first, folks...this is my declaration of WAR. Weak core - out the door!
