Abs with a gun show...I just like saying that...

Hell to the YA. Word to your Mutha. My new improved ab routine is working! To you it's probably the same ol sh*t but I swear I'm on the cusp of ab greatness!

Look Ma, something! lol and as the Instagram'ers say: no filter. ha

So you may be thinking, wow Laura obviously skipped the sodium fest that is a bowl of ramen noodles last night. Well, contrar. I have a few new ab exercises. I changed out the bosu for the large stability ball for a greater range of motion. And I added leg lifts:

It's not the most flattering video but I saw the same video by a girl on Fb about a year ago and thought, damn. I wish I could do that. I'm sure my form is crap or there are newbie mistakes but I'm a work in progress!

I think the core and upper body strength stuff I have added is working to make my run stronger. More on the gun show later (haha)...

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hey Laura!

    Thanks for the response! I ran a 4.4 miler on Thanksgiving morning and met my goal of all my splits being sub-10. I've committed to a half in September.

    Good luck training for Boston! I'll be reading along.

    Thanks again,


    1. Yay Tom! Thanks for keeping me posted. I remember these stories when I'm struggling in my own training/races. They inspire me! Thanks and happy training!
