What was your peak performance moment of the day?
As we wrap up a short work week over here and get ready to celebrate some serious PIE and TURKEY, I am happy to report my new record.
One minute and forty one seconds!
That was my plank today. I am amazed at what showing up and sticking to a routine can do for the body. Specifically for my pilates plank. If you have been around here for a while, you know that I started off at 30 seconds. I keep inching forward, every week, without practice, to a longer plank.
And it’s getting easier. Because I keep showing up. Even on days when I don’t feel like it, when I’m tired, when I’m sad, when I’m worn out, stressed out and laid out.
I keep showing up and doing that damn plank.
And you know what, it keeps getting better. Because I am pushed to the moment of failure. I go until my arms shake so hard my body starts to lose it’s grip.
But it’s the moment of failure that makes me stronger. (Isn’t that always the case?)
And that makes me remember some really important advice:
Stick to it.
Keep on it.
Just do it.
Here’s to your peak performance.
