Great questions.

For the plank, what you want is an elongated spine.  You can’t keep an elongated spine with rounded shoulders.  With the elongated spine, you then want to engage your core, then your gluts.  Then hold.  And only hold as long as you can to maintain good form.  Once it fails, stop and rest.

Adding in hills is always a great way to elevate your workout.  By doing so, you can work on managing/training heart rate, focus on good running mechanics, all while building strength and pushing  up your lactate threshold.  It’s a win win and a great way to continue to challenge yourself.  This can applied to both run and cycling workouts.

What are others doing to fine tune your workouts?
