    You did just do the leg raises? Or did you do the situps too?

    Both.

    I might have read the extras wrong.

    How was it? We can do both if you want.

    Wasn't too bad, it would be pretty rough on the side plank type days.

    Done, did both the extras too. Think if I find it easy I'll do both, on the harder days just the one.

    Plank Jacks were unbelievably unpleasant

    I thought they were fine. My hip is feeling a bit dodgy for some reason though.

    Yeah didn't find them too bad, my toes started to hurt towards the end though. Did both the extras, sweaty and hungover again. Tomorrow will be unpleasant.

    Hated today. Side planks are the diamond push ups of this challenge.

    Yeah I've beeb holding off doing them. What extras did you do? Did we lose pon?

    I did the press ups as we've been doing and just the leg raises to stretch off a bit. It wasn't nice.

    Think pon might have bleed out after sending a toe.

    60 seconds on each side? Fucks sake.

    60 seconds feels really long when it's something you don't enjoy.

    Yeah pretty awful. Fucks the shoulders too.

    Well if your shoulders are sore today won't help.

    Just did it and staying up with straight arms like that started to ache a bit. Not too bad overall though.

    Yeah one of the easier ones. The situps and leg raises are the worst part of this now.

    I've fucked my hip on the side planks yesterday so the leg raises are quite a nice relief and stretch.

    Done. They actually hurt a bit for planks.

    Yep just done. I think it's the extras building up and making everything hurt a bit more which is good.

    It's nowhere near as savage as the 1st challenge though.

    Today's super weird. We're supposed to do only five plank jacks to 'boost our heart rate' but on a normal days previously we were doing them for 60 seconds.

    Today's was pretty grim actually. I think with only 5 plank Jack's it's because you have all the other exercises in 1 set too.

    Easy day today. Don't say you've gone the way of the pon, Decks.

    Was hung over to fuck yesterday so really couldn't face it. Just done yesterdays and todays now.

    That sounds worse than doing it hungover.

    Unless it was a red wine hangover, which is understandable.

    That boost your heart rate thing felt really easy, felt like I was doing something wrong or something. Went for 80 situps though so my stomach feels fucked now.

    I'm still noticing a difference in my chest more so than my stomach.

    Done. Bit of a weird one, felt it in my knees more than my core.

    Did them last last night quite drunk. Got today's done too which was rough.

    At least I won't be thinking about doing them all day.
