At the end of November, I had the bright idea of following a “30 days of planking” plan I found, as a way to build my core strength. Seemed easy enough, you start at 20 seconds and over the course of a month build up to 270 seconds. You even get some rest days in there.

I wanted to start December 1st as a way to keep track of the days, but didn’t quite get it going, so it got put off until January 1st. And since I mentioned it to Charles, he’s also joining in/encouraging me.

We’re currently at 90 seconds. The first 70 really aren’t that bad, but there might be cursing involved for the last 10 seconds.

I’m grateful for that “ding” that signifies the end.
