Sun Salutation Yoga -- 25 -- Fast **V
Bury Your Roots **V

3. Wall Plank Challenge (WPCh):
The 5 Second Activity Log - (Keeping Skimble Real )☆ HS
The details of this challenge in my pics folder.
Find or draw a small dot, 2-5 mm diameter and concentrate on it, just look at it without blinking, let go all the mental talk called thoughts. There's only the DOT in the whole Universe! After you finish the meditation, do some eyes exercises: look right and left, up and down, move your eyeballs clockwise and counter clockwise. Then gently wash your eyes.
After 2 weeks of the September training plan:
Extended from 5 to 10 minutes, as I usually need around 5 minutes to calm my mental clutter down so that in the following 5 min. I can actually focus on the meditation object (a dot).
2. Yoga in September.
a) First week I was doing one of the two versions of Sun Salutations. Feeling really good, mentally and physically, with these sets of asanas. I am going to include them in my future training plans.
b) Second week: Bury Your Roots. This workout hasn't felt that great this time. There are probably two reasons: I was not doing it systematically (moving home, changing jobs, very busy), so I didn't have enough regular practice; it's (too) difficult for now, so I need to practice more.
3. Wall Plank Challenge.
These first two weeks have been very easy, 20-90 seconds planks. Hope this warm up phase has built me some muscles necessary to keep the position for longer periods of time though. I will see whether this has happened very soon…
After the full month of the September plan：
3rd week was a constant catching up. 4th week till now （6.10）no planned workouts，just quite regular brisk walking. Not completely cured cold, catching another one，low energy levels. Plus new city，new company，a completely new industry… pretty energy sucking too.
Wall plank personal best：3 minutes.
October training plan
1. Continue with Sierra's 10 Miles Walking a Week Challenge.
2. Do Beast Mode Camp Yoga in October.
3. Continue my Wall Plank Challenge with a goal of reaching a comfortable 4 minutes （being at very painful 3 minutes now）.
That's all for this month.
（1）Lina's Plank Challenge (5 * 1 min，30 sec rest between the reps，7 days in a row).
（2）Easy bodyweight and stretching exercises.
15-21 th ：
Crane Challenge 1 min
June 12 - July 12 ：BPU！
BPU stands for… bathroom pullups. Every time in there，means a set of pull ups（or half pull ups or hanging depending on how I'm feeling）till failure.
I don't have a pull up bar，but I do have a kind of a wall that doesn't reach the ceiling in there. Oh，and the door！：-D
