So, I happened upon a fellow blogger’s 30-DAY ABS & SQUAT CHALLENGE today. (Thank you, craptrunners.com!) Me, being curious, intrigued, clear of any running races planned in the next 30 days, and a bit competitive in nature (with myself, of course) thought: Why not?
I have never done one of these uncompromising challenges that are probably nowhere close to being based on sound scientific evidence, especially concerning long term benefits other than: Active = good, Sedentary = bad, but completing it might be fun/challenging/crazy. So, how many people stick with these things the whole 30 days? And if you miss a day, can you still say you completed the challenge? Eh, not in my Type-A mind.
So, here goes. Day 1 was good, maybe even a little easy, but since my hamstrings are tighter than an extra small sports bra, I am okay with starting easy. And looking at the 30-day goal of 40 sit ups, 100 crunches, and 100 squats, my prediction is pretty simple: Not Easy.
So, who’s with me?
