Tag Archives: plank with thigh taps

Pictures are Better than Words

Today for my 43 I did a move that I just tried for the first time yesterday (thanks, Taylor!!).  The move is a plank with alternate thigh taps.

I counted a right tap and a left tap as 1 rep.  This was another one of those fun ways to spice up a plank!!

I also went for another humid Florida run.  I only ran 3 miles (24:54) and then walked 0.5 miles.  Today’s route was nice because I had water views almost the entire way!!

The condo that we are renting has some really neat beach themed pictures hanging around.Screen shot 2013-07-24 at 8.27.20 AM

The boys enjoy the time in the water, time hanging out with our friends here, and the whole relaxing feeling of vacation!!!

Matt (on the left) and Chris have been friends since they were young (like junior high)!!  Matt & his family live in Texas but they flew out for a few days while we were here – so much fun to catch up with them again!!!  Watching Chris and Matt play in the water yesterday reminds me that we are all kids at heart – they road waves for an hour and had a great time!!!  (the boys were all at the pool!!).

Vacation is the perfect time to relax, recharge and reconnect with friends!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!
