Ab work is a social activity.
There isn’t much to smile about when getting up to work out at 5:30 am, but some of my fondest memories of college running outside of racing are those moments we spent chatting over planks and crunches at the crack of dawn. It turned an otherwise mundane activity into a social one.
Which brings me to today. I’ve had a multi-tasking breakthrough of sorts. When Libby has tummy time…
I have crunch time. I’m on the floor anyway, and I can still watch and engage with Libby while doing a few sit-ups or planks. It’s not the best workout in the world, but doing these exercises while hanging out with my little girl sure makes them go quickly. And a few crunches, a few times a day, adds up.
So it looks like I have myself a new training partner. She works on strengthening her core while I work on mine. We make a good team.
