2 Challenges, One Month

Charlie challenged us to do 21 days of yoga in January and I {stupidly} decided to do a plank a day challenge!

The Runner Beans

As the month comes to an end today I thought I’d let you know how I got on with the yoga challenge and share with you all the online videos and classes I did, in case you want to set your own yoga challenge.

I also randomly decided to do a plank a day challenge as part of my ongoing commitment to my core! This was really tough and David was participating with me until Day 9 when he decided that 60 seconds a day was enough for him!plank

I managed to get to day 16 before realising this was a slightly silly plan (I just googled it and picked one) 15 sec jumps?! No thanks. So I just continued doing as long as I can each day reaching 165secs by 29th. That’s a 2:45 plank! I never imagined in a million years I’d be able to do that. I didn’t beat it today though, so It’s a standing record!

What’s your favourite yoga class?

Do you have a new challenge for me?
