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.
