In this case it is getting my decidedly non-bikini-shape torso muscles into enough shape so that after 3 months of hard and heavy eating, I'll survive this fool marathon I'm (hopefully still) going to run in 46 x 24 hours.
Each day between now and Saturday, June 2 (in addition to whatever else may be going on, including work, long runs, all-day musical rehearsals, Guinness binges at 2 a.m. or red-eye flights to San Francisco) I will complete either:
Option A: Core Bomb
Various abdominal strengtheners (5 min) +
Lower back strengthener (1 min) +
Face-down planks (2 x 1 min) +
Rolling side planks w/out stopping (5 each side x 30 sec) +
Push-ups (3 x 12) +
Tricep-dips (3 x 12)
Option B: 30 minutes of Yoga
(This morning at 6:30 I did 60 minutes. Thank you,

|Yes. This is my kitchen. |
Yes. That is my cat eating breakfast next to my block.
Incidentally, I may or may not post an "after" picture.
No way, this time, am I posting a "before."
