Bring on the June

Sunday, June 01, 2014

Well, May really flew past me. I worked crazy-style so I could leave for vacation without leaving too much hanging at work. Nine days on a motorcycle, two days of laundry and then two days at a work seminar.

Next thing I know, it's June 1st! Where will I go from here?

I started the 30-day plank challenge today. I've worked my way up to a one-minute plank but then slacked off. So this challenge will get me back in gear.

I have two 5Ks coming up this month. This Saturday is a run benefitting a local zoo. Then the following week is the Warrior Dash with my kids. Besides the abs, I've been working on improving my upper body strength to be ready for the Dash.

I went running yesterday but kept it to only two miles since it was over 85 degrees, first time I ran in the heat this year. I soaked a bandana in water in the fridge for a while and tied it around my head. It gave me a nice breeze as I ran.

Okay sparkers, for many of us, summer is upon us. Let's own each day, get plenty of fresh air and keep moving.

Let's make this summer last forever....

"Yeah, this summer's gonna last forever
Yeah, there'll be another tonight
Yeah, this summer's gonna last forever
Yeah, 'cause this is the time of your life"

    What kind of planks will you do? Weren't you including side planks for a while? I made myself a push-up challenge. But while I'm on the floor it often morphs into planks and bicycle crunches. Works well!

    Hallelujah, summer is here ! ! !

    June will be a month of recovery for me. No activity allowed except for walking. My surgery was this past Tuesday and I came home on Thursday. Can't say I have felt all that great so I am taking this first week off. Then I will be back at it with my Spark Tracker emoticon

    Sounds like you have a great plan for June.

    I am ALL about summer, I just love it. We have been having high 80s and 90s already, a little unusual even for here. It went from the 60s to HOT HOT HOT so fast, and humid too! I am trying to get used to it.

    I like the idea of a plank challenge. The plank has really helped my ab muscles. You are running and enjoying your summer. Have a very good June.

    Good luck with your planks challenge. I did it and worked up from 10 seconds to a minute! Then I got bronchitis and non-stop coughing for 6 months- now I'm at TWO minutes. Who said coughing wasn't good for you.

    If you want to try a squat challenge, then google Fitness Blender 100 squats. It is 10 reps of 10 and God do you feel it.
