How long can you hold plank position?

Ever tried holding plank for a few minutes? yes? Then you know how at one point, your whole body starts to shake. You know how your abs start to burn. Then you know how at one point, you're tempted to let your belly sag or instead you resort to sticking your but up to give your muscles a semi rest. That whole proess may kick in after 30 seconds or maybe a minute a two depending on your level of conditioning.
Well, can you believe that a 16 year old girl held plank so long that she broke the world record? She held plank not for half an hour, not even an hour, but for 1 hour and twenty minutes!! Amazing. Check her out:

I'm never complaining while holding plank again :)
Fyi, I did make it the gym this week, on Friday instead of Monday though. It felt great!! Got to sparr with no gear, hit pads and work up a sweat. It doesn't get any better than that woohooo!

Short trip to Boston

So I'm Boston for a few days to attend a meeting and I, surprise surprise, went for a run. Score :)
Man. The good folks in Boston run FAST. Well in my eyes anyway... but then again I jog. I say I go for a run but you should know that means a jog. I was not made to run, I do it but not like the real runners do it lol
As it became very apparent yesterday as the Bostonians whizzed by me, time and time again. It was great though, nice weather, scenic downtown views by the Charles River.
The best part of the trip though is visiting my cousin and his family. My little cousin gave me this:


I found my motivation! I so want to keep punching!! Wish I was punching something/someone right now!
Reality is that I haven't been to the gym in over a month. Work kept me at work. Boo.
Going to the gym on Monday night for sure fo' sho' #missTheWat #missmyWatfamily
