That was written at 3:00. At 4:00 a two-and-half minute plank. Your body behaves in mysterious ways.

One can't help but wonder if your back seizing up three times this week could be related to the planks you've been doing.

Maybe trying to match Peter has taken its toll.

Nice article. My core is strong. It’s my arms that give out quickly. I often do the 45 degree plank mentioned in the article when in the kitchen waiting for the meal to heat up.

The first of the recent string of back issues was the day before Peter showed up, and was related to mushroom inoculation. I don’t find that the planks bother it. They do seem to irritate my chronically weak and tender left arm.
