Mile 1014: Because the LAST Challenge Worked Out SO Well


“So what? I’m still a rock star.”
–Pink, “So What”

Miles Last Week: 56
Total Miles: 1014

Last August, I tried a planking challenge. I began, I faltered, I modified, and I failed. It’s okay. I’m (mostly) over it.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this Facebook event entitled “The 30-Day Ab Challenge,” starting June 1. I clicked, perused, and thought, Oh, I’m probably not going to do that.

But after I’d clicked something else and moved on, I kept thinking about it. Maybe I could…

So I am.

The challenge begins today and continues throughout the month–which is incredibly convenient. If you forget what day you’re on, just look at the date. For the slightly scatterbrained among us (to whom I relate), this is a great tool. I’m also hoping the sit-ups/crunches/leg-raises/planks (we meet again) will be a good tool to help me find my abs. I’m pretty sure they’re in my torso somewhere. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. I believe.

I’m feeling much more confident about this challenge than the last one. I didn’t die after day one, which I consider to be good news. The other good news is that you don’t ever plank for more than two minutes. (The bad news would be those 125 sit-ups and 65 leg raises.)

Here we go again! Kind of.

Join me, won’t you?
