As if I don't already have enough on my schedule with HIM training and marathon training, I've decided to take on something else: a 30 day Hard Core Challenge. I read about the challenge at Good 'N' Weird here and thought it would be a great challenge. After all, having a strong core is pretty much essential as a triathlete. I've been trying to do more core exercises, and while some weeks I'm consistent, for the most part I usually drop the ball when it comes to doing them. So, I thought the challenge would be a good way to keep me motivated. And just so you know, that is unfortunately NOT a picture of me, but maybe my abs will look a tad similar by the end of this! :)
I wasn't able to start on June 1st because 1) I didn't know about it until June 3rd, and 2) I had my tri on Friday and didn't want the potential of sore abs for my race. So, I started the challenge on the 6th. I think there is a good mix of exercises and I love how she incorporates some yoga moves. In fact, I think those are the hardest ones!
Kristina at Good 'N' Weird is taking before and after pictures and measurements, but I won't be doing any of that. Hopefully I'll be able to see the changes and feel them during my swims, bike rides, and runs. Because after all, I'm not doing this to look good in a bathing suit. I'm doing it to become stronger and healthier. But, on the other hand, it would be nice to have killer abs like Beth at Shut Up and Run! or EMZ at If I can't convince you --I'll at least confuse you! :)
