Hello September!!!! Finally, the dreaded months of June, July, and August are over. I wish I could like them, I really do. But I *loathe* the summer. September does not mean it will instantly cool off, because it won’t, but on the 22nd of this month, it will officially be fall (AUTUMN!) and that is my most favorite season. Aahh….
And with a new month, means a new goal. I had a few different ones in mind for this one, but coming right off the #AugustCoreFocus challenge and really enjoying that, I decided to keep the focus on my core for another month. So, I will be doing my own #DailyCoreWork challenge for September. It will be the perfect companion to my half marathon training.
It’s pretty straight forward… Each day, I’ll do a straight arm plank, a forearm plank, boat post, and crunches. I’m going to keep track of my times / # of crunches to see how I progress over the month. I can absolutely feel a difference in my core, thanks to the Sneakers and Fingerpaints #AugustCoreFocus challenge and it will only continue to benefit my running and overall lower back strength.
At the end of the month, as always, I will do a recap and let you know how I did, and how I feel at the end.
