The 30 Day Plank Challenge - Want to Join Me?

I know that core strength is important for me not only for my running but for lower back discomfort and sacroiliac (SI) issues I have.  Therefore, I decided to do this 30 day plank challenge.   I just finished day 5 and it is getting tougher every day!

I am doing the traditional plank position on my elbows as well as on each side.

I finished it!!!  I would recommend going at your own pace though.  In my 30 day challenge, I wasn't able to go past 60 seconds, but I'm definitely a lot stronger and am hoping to make this an ongoing habit.

Awesome, Tim!  I posted it here for more accountability to finish it :)
