You know how I mentioned that I was really, really tired yesterday? Well, Claire and I ended up taking a THREE HOUR NAP (Henry was at school), and it was the most glorious thing ever. I couldnâ€™t believe we both slept so long. And it was one of those situations where I didnâ€™t realize how the lack of sleep was impacting me until I woke up tooootally refreshed. It feels like Iâ€™ve been functioning at 50% brainpower for the last four months and I can suddenly THINK again.
Hit the gym in the evening!
I did a modified version of the workout above â€“ I swam a grand total of 750 yards. Then I hopped on the treadmill and ran a fast 8-minute mile. And then I headed to the mats to do a little ab action.
Sweaty plank hold concentration lines! Hah.
I am super excited to tell you about the Peanut Butter Runnerâ€™s new book! Ultimate Plank Fitness by Jen DeCurtins is available wherever books and ebooks are sold. Itâ€™s pretty awesome. I like it so much, in fact, that I asked her if I could share some pages from the book so yâ€™all could take a peek inside.
Here are four moves from Jenâ€™s book!
Good stuff, huh? I like that it incorporates a variety of body weight-style planks, as well as planks using dumbbells and stability balls. If youâ€™re bored with regular planks, this book may be the perfect way to spice up your ab moves.
