14 Day Toned Arms Challenge

Whilst running on the hottest day of the year so far I realized that it will soon be time to change my running wardrobe!  From covering up to keep warm, to less and less clothing to keep cool!  I have always worn t-shirts but I may venture in to wearing vests this summer!  I have lost some weight, not a huge amount, but enough to be more confident in showing my arms – but at t-shirt level!   With this in mind it is time I started looking into toning my arms, some.    My Google search lead me to the 14 Day Toned Arms Challenge at the daily hit website. and looks like this:-

Doing planks and push-ups should also help with my core too!  I will track what I have done on the table below, just to keep me accountable!  I also hope that by Day 14 I will be used to doing this kind of routine that I will either keep doing them (maybe repeating Days 8-14) or increasing them or even trying a new challenge.

Try it with me!
