Challenge Accepted!

I always see these 30 day challenges for squats, planks, etc on day 15 or 16 when someone in my friends list on facebook starts posting about how tough the challenge is getting. Then I'll say to myself: "I should should do that too! I'll start on the 1st of next month so the days correspond and I can track it easier." I've never actually done one of these challenges. I always forget by the start of the next month and again, remember about halfway through. Well this time someone posted about a squat challenge early in the month and I was determined to catch up and start right away. But of course I like to take things to the extreme so I decided to do a triple challenge this month and I decided that I would catch up during tonight's class so I wouldn't be in pain alone! (insert evil laugh here) We did the first 6 days tonight so tomorrow I only have to worry about day 7.

So this month I'm doing a swing, squat, plank challenge. Here's the break down:

  1. If you decide to join the challenge, remember that you have 24 hours to complete each day. So, you don't have to do an 11 minute plank, you can break it up into 30sec at a time or whatever you're comfortable with to get it done.
