Try planks

I still haven't tried planks yet...but I did all other exercises. And I'm well ahead of my daily average, so that's great.

After reading my friend's blog, and he brought up some crazy shoes: Vibram Five Fingers. I read up on it all day yesterday, and on the way home today, I stopped by the flagship REI store--and bought a pair! How much do I love them? A TON! But, there was a problem: one of the shoes tore in two places after wearing them for 5 hours, going on my walk, and jumping rope. Reading a bunch of site about the shoes tells me that these must be a defective pair. I'm hoping to return them tomorrow and rock the rest of the week (and weekend) with a new pair of KSO's!

BJ, I am glad to hear your report on the shoes. Of course, I have to admit, I am somewhat disappointed to read that they tore after such a short time, but hopefully that was just a bad shoe. I will be anxiously awaiting more updates from you on this.

By the way, you gotta try the planks. A good buddy of mine has been putting them off for several weeks and just tried them the day before yesterday -- he says he loves them. He also admitted they were much tougher than he thought they would be, but that they are just a flat-out awesome exercise.
