A Fun Challenge for March

Today’s 44 was a hard one!!  I used 1 of the small wobble balls and did a side plank with a knee in.

Just holding the side plank was hard with the added challenge of the wobble ball.

And because I’m trying to take my own picture it is hard to tell but I actually did a little crunch every time I brought my knee in.  

Of course, I had to switch sides and do 44 more.  I tried about 10 times to take pictures but they are all even blurrier than the ones above so there is no need to show them!

Angela @ Happy Fit Mama set up a fun challenge for the month of March.  I wan’t sure if I was going to try this one or not but the more I looked at it the more fun I decided it would be.  It is the HappyFitMarch Challenge (fun little play on her blog name!!)

I started today with a run.  I ended up running 5 miles and I used my first mile which was actually my slowest for the challenge today –

5 miles (at 1.5% incline) in 34:51 so it ended up being under 7:00 minutes/mile – kind of nice since lately I have been focusing more on distance and less on speed.

I’m a little sad that this is another busy Saturday – Chris has drill this weekend, I’m fixing to run Hunter around for a special cello practice and bow (cello bow) shopping.  Tonight Chris and I have a formal to attend – gotta get all fancied up!!!

And, don’t forget the predicted snow for the weekend!!!  They have already been saying that there will be cancellations tomorrow and Monday!!  I can hardly wait.

Are you expecting more snow this weekend?  Are you as happy about it as I am?

Happy Saturday!!!
