I'm having one of those days. Lots to do, excited about everything, can't quite concentrate on just one thing. Indulge me while I brain dump—it's officially "What's Up Wednesday" around here.
1) PUSHUPS WITH ALTERNATING ROTATIONS TO SIDE PLANK
I'm having a marvelous time with pushups these days...I'm pretty sure my classes and clients hate me for it, but whatevs. Secretly they love me for it, this I know. Lately, I've been a big fan of pushups with alternating rotations to side plank. Never a dull moment when you turn two exercises into one. Obviously you start with a pushup...
From here, you rotate back down into a pushup, then come up again on the other side. Reps and sets are up to you, and you can absolutely modify to knees if you need to. And as you advance, you can work in a top-leg abduction to increase the core challenge. (<—I know, right? Slick move.)

3) #INDYWOMENSHALF TRAINING UPDATE
Things are going well in this department. Two things that are different than when I trained for the Chicago Women's Half Marathon: My shoes and the heat. Holy cow, it's as if the temps changed overnight. My morning runs used to be somewhat cool. Now I feel like I'm swimming through the humidity. Legs still feel strong, though. Here's what I've got coming up:
Yep, still studying. I have a stack of magazines about 20 deep to prove it—unread magazines never happen in this house! I have finally made my way through the book that details human anatomy and exercise science, so now I'm just reviewing my note cards.
