All going swimmingly

31 Jul

Day two of training for Judgement Day… Got in from work and was absolutely shattered so opted for a swim and my planking routine. This is designed to build core and upper body strength to build up to push-ups, even if you can’t do them right now. The routine is:

Plank for 60 secs

Rest for 30 secs

Plank with arms straight for 60 secs

Rest for 30 secs

Dip down with your arms like a press-up as far as you can and hold for as long as you can.

I’m lucky enough to have a pool in my building so I’ll be making good use of it in the run up to the event, as well as giving the gym a bash or two! This was tonight:

Tomorrow I’m doing a 12km run to feel the distance as well as keepin’ on plankin’! I WILL get to that perfect push-up soon!
