A couple months, as I was surfing around Pinterest...
Ahem... quick aside... surfing is cardio, right?
No? Blah. Anyyyyyway... I came across a link to a Plank Challenge calendar. It was fairly old so the dates didn't really match up to anything in real time, but the general idea was totally workable. You do a plank each day for a month, adding to the length of time you held it each day, working your way up to 90 seconds at the end of the month.
I have now been doing 90-second planks daily. Well, when I remember to anyway. But my rule is... if I think about it, then I have to stop what I'm doing and DO it. (Be back in 90 seconds...)
I just stumbled across a website that promises that you'll be able to perform 100 consecutive push ups after seven weeks. I like doing these incremental challenges. They motivate me and give me something concrete to measure my accomplishments.
I'm a girly push up kind of girl. But maybe as I progress, I'll be able to do the full push ups. And even if I can't... I have every intention of doing much better in seven weeks than I did today!
Here is the link to the program if you're interested: hundredpushups.com/index
^ That's me! Even the colors are correct!
