This and That


Remember when I first went to see trainer guy three week ago? I've been working on my core two to three times a week since then. I've still got a ways to go, but I'm actually seeing some progress with regard to the numbers.

When I started, I could only hold plank for 20 secs. My goal is 3 sets of 90 secs, and today I can do 3 sets of 40 secs.

I also started off being able to do a whopping total of two push-ups. It took every ounce of my being to do those two push-ups. The goal is 3 sets of 20 while focussing on good form. Today my three sets consisted of 9, 7, and 7.

Then there's the foam roller. After using it almost every day for a week, it's now my friend.

Should mention those evil pilates V-ups and rocking V-ups. Let's just say that I still have a lot of work to do on those, and leave it at that.

  3. Congrats! That's awesome seeing such improvements :-) I was just thinking yesterday that trainers seem evil at 6am, but they really do make a difference in strength. Good job on the workouts.

  9. I love that picture!!

    You are making great improvements and I could already tell at the Socorro tri that your abs were more toned...hard work always pays off and you can tell :-) (now I wish I had stuck with the pushups, too - maybe this winter)

    Way to stick with the pushups, planks, and the foam roller!

  16. You're doing great. I was watching the Denise Richards show last night where she was trying to get her abs ready for going on her tropical vacation. I'm headed out on my tropical vacation soon, and I wish I could somehow get rock hard abs too! But I don't think it's happening at this point.
