So, today was pretty smooth sailing! I woke up and finally went to a Pilates class- which I have been dying to try (more on this on Friday)! I received an email that an opening came available for an earlier Girl’s on the Run coaches training, so my new training date is tomorrow! I am so excited! I then had a day full of meal planning, grocery shopping, and preparing for the Girl’s on the Run coaches training tomorrow. Finally, I met with my personal trainer for a great shoulder, chest, and tri work out! Even better, when I got home my husband had dinner prepared, and I was definitely hungry after working up a sweat! After dinner, my husband and I played catch up with the fitness challenges for this week.
As you know Monday’s challenge was to see how many burpees you can do in two minutes! I found this challenge to be really hard. You would not think that two minutes is a long time, but it felt like eons in burpee time! I struggled with this challenge, and I definitely need to practice my burpee form (something to work on in the future?). In two minutes I was able to do 19 burpees. My husband found this challenge to be hard too, but he kicked my butt with 26 burpees!
Next up was today’s challenge for a one minute plank. This exercise is right up my alley! I love planks and I love working on my core! I kept this exercise simple and did the basic plank. However, I do love plank variations as well! One minute plank no problem! I guess next time I should go for a harder variation…
How many burpees can you do in two minutes? Did you do your one minute plank today? Whats your favorite plank variation?
