Day 19: Increased Awesomeness

increased awesomenessWhy are we active every day?

Why do we do our best to make good food choices?

Because daily exercise and healthy eating leads to increased awesomeness!

We’re not perfect. We don’t always make the best choices…we don’t always get our exercises done…but we try!

We are active. We support each other and hold each other accountable. We know that the more good choices we make…the more awesomeness is coming our way!

Friday is Ab day and ab work must be done. We need a strong core to stay stable and upright when we’re running and to keep our hips in line and rest of us working properly. But if we don’t make healthy food choices…all those ab exercises don’t count…so make a conscious effort to make good choices today Crew!

Day 19 exercises: 3 sets of each workout

  • Daily Abs
  • Standing Abs
  • Plank Challenge Day 19 – High Plank Reach (:45 3X)

Plank Challenge – Day 19: High Plank Reach – Simple plank…but won’t be easy! Here’s the steps. **We have a few people dealing with shoulder issues…please just do a regular forearm plank if you are having pain.

  1. Assume a high plank position.
  2. Walk your hands as far forward as you possibly can, drawing your navel in and squeezing your butt.
  3. Hold for 45 seconds; do three sets

Bonus: Ab & Squat Challenge – Day 19: So yesterday was a rest day…OOPS…so take today as a rest day…or bust out day 19..it’s easy. 😉

  • 5 Sit Ups
  • 5 Crunches
  • 5 Squats

That’s it…no extra credit. Just stretch, hydrate, eat well…and get ready for those long runs!

Paula, Amiee, Jessica, Diane, Heather, and I are all going long today to get it out of the way before the weekend. Amiee and I are doing 22, Paula is hanging for 20, and Jessica is going for 12 (her longest! 🙂 ) Not sure how long Diane will hang with us but she’s a beast so we’ll be chatting it up for hours. 🙂

Make good choices Crew…take the road to increased awesomeness!
