The Plank vs. The Plank

I love pilates.  I remember loving the classes before my little one was born.  And even though I haven't regularly attended a pilates class in over 6 years, I am loving the class on Thursdays at the rec center. 

With that being said, I hate planks!  I HATE them.  Probably because I am pretty weak when it comes to doing them.  I think I would rather walk the plank than actually do a plank. 

I got to the rec center 30 minutes before the pilates class, so I hit the treadmill.  I managed a 15 minute mile.  Actually it was more like 15 minutes 25 seconds but pretty close to a consistent 4.0 mph run.  I was nice and "glistening" when I walked into pilates.  Today there was more than me and Barbie.  There was actually 7 ladies including Grace Kelly!  This was her first pilates class, so Yea Kelly!  Ab Ripper Shellie was pretty tough today, much tougher than last week.  There was kind of a faster pace to the class, and it was challenging.  And it included planks!   >=O    Once again, I just held the plank as long as I could.  I hate them, but I do them.  I try to do them. 

According to Nietzsche, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."  I'm wondering if Nietzshe ever did planks.  I know doing them is the only way to get stronger.  And since I didn't do my circuit training today, I needed to take advantage of every full body exercise I was doing.

On a last note, Warrior Dash posted the Central Texas race on Facebook today.  We'll be signing up this weekend!  With only 240 days to go, WP "likes" this!
