    Going for 100 min again

    4/1: 2:00 during tabata + 4:00 mixed planks.
    4/2: 2:00 or more during elev8 + 4:00 J. Soh
    4/3: 3:00 personal mix, almost skipped it
    4/4: 1:30, during lifting. None extra, embarassing
    4/5: 5:00 J. Soh older workout + 2:30 or more during the 45 min tabata workout
    4/6: almost missed it, then did 4:00 b4 bed, yeay me!
    4/7: 4:00 as part of the strength (instead of 3x20s they suggested) + about 2:00 during the HIIT later on
    4/8: 2:00 or 3:00, did not count, during strength/cardio video + 3:00 personal mix
    4/9: 4:00 personal random mix
    4/10: I dont remember 🤷‍♀️. Either 4 min or rest day... 🤔
    4/11: Soh's newer, harder workout. I only replaced the jacks with still plank, ya know, to leave room for improvement 🤦‍♀️. So 5:00 + some say 2:00 during HIIT later in the day
    4/12: maybe 3:00 as part of the Tabata HasFit workout
    4/13: 7:00 min of the challenge in the spoiler below + 1:00 during a short tabata workout
    4/14: none 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️😁
    4/15: 7:00 of Benson's " 8 minutes of plank work for toned abs and a strong core"
    4/16: 2:00+ during a HasFit Tabata (so breaks in between) + 4:00 personal mix

    Somethings must have gone wrong last time I posted... 😑 Let's play "Memory":

    4/17: maybe none, I went hiking that day... I vaguely remember doing 3 min, cause I couldnt take a break, but I'll let it be. Should teach me a lesson for not reporting daily!
    4/18: I think 4:00, personal mix
    4/19: 5:00 of Joahnna Soh's new workout video (remember I had this as a goal in March? I did it now! Without modifications! After lifting w dumbbells! (Day 2 of M&S)
    4/20: 4:00, roughly, during a HIIT workout

    Total: 86:00

    Way to go! You’re so close to the 100 minute mark. Next time up it to 110? 🤯

    Also I hate to be the one to tell you so late in the month, but unless you’re working on a different calendar than me, it’s the 5th month, not the 4th.

    Back at it today! I haven’t been feeling very much motivation this week. I’ve also dropped some weight in the last couple of weeks so maybe I’m a little tired because of the calorie deficit 🤷‍♂️

    But... I’m close enough that I’m confident I’ll hit my 60 min goal. Just gotta tough it out.

    I missed a day somehow! I’m actually only 1 day away from goal now. I’m gonna see how far over 60 minutes I get and then maybe take 90% of that and add it to my June goal. Anyone else have advice on how to improve the length of time spent in plank position? I’m pretty much maxed at 45 seconds right now and haven’t tried anything to increase it. Comments welcome!
