Day 8 of the 30 day challenge

So today all I needed to do was 45 second plank. I did it and my shoulder still hurts. I think tomorrow is going to be a little more difficult, we move up to 1 minute plank and 7 push-ups. Just remember, you have to start somewhere…and this is my start.

Day 7 of 30

First I complete my push-ups (7 today) to a few minutes rest then did the 45 second plank session. I was feeling a little pain in my left should when I was doing my plank session. I am not sure if this is related or if I did something different.

Day 5 of 30

Well today I made a little mistake, I did my 5 push ups but I only did the plank for 30 seconds, I forgot to adjust the timer. Tomorrow I get a break from the planks but increase the push ups to 6. We’ll see if I am able to continue, I should hope so.

From 0 to 100 miles

Well yesterday I posted on Facebook that I signed up for the St. Mary’s Century. I am not sure what I was thinking at the time, but I have already committed to riding, so now I have to start training. Here is the problem, my bike is gear toward off-road riding and I have not […]

The gauntlet has been dropped.

As many of you know, I have had a weight issue. About 13 years ago, about the time I quit smoking, I started gaining weight and I am now hovering at about 263lbs (For those people that knew me in high school, yes that is double my weight). I needed a way to get motivated […]

Couch to 5K
