The Steam Whistle 12K has been rain delayed until noon. I drove down to Jackson Station and put up some postponed signs early this morning – I have been up a while. However, it looks like the storms have passed and they have brought cooler weather. The race conditions are starting to look favorable.
I have always kept abdominal exercises in my strength training plan. I have down the P90X abs cruncher routines and they are challenging. When it comes to planks I am pretty good. I can do several sets and hold them for about 90 seconds or so. They really light up the core. Since I have been playing with the TRX I have been humbled regarding my core strength. With the unstabilizing nature of the TRX all of my strength goes out the door. Take a look (I realize that my butt is too high – something I need to work on).
