Pandemic Pastimes: Doing a Rubiks Cube while in Plank

 New Topic: Pandemic Pastimes.

Finding meaningful challenges
Thinking inside the box.

Here's a video showing how much I have to refine my technique and endurance.

My pandemic pastime is to learn to solve a rubrik cube while in plank. I’ve worked for two weeks reading and watching YouTube. My nephew pointed out some basics to me but I kept running into roadblocks.

I finally hired an online instructor (Tania: she’s amazingly patient and useful. Highly recommended. Comment for her contact info) and I can now solve the cube. Not every time but I have done it now twice myself. M

My initial times for solving: 24 minutes!
My longest time in plank position: 72 seconds.

By late spring:
Time for solving rubiks cube:    Around 3 minutes Time for staying in plank:         Around 65 seconds

Problem: my rubik time is not moving down any more and my plank time is actually going the wrong way.

Next steps: work harder at staying in plank and accelerate my solution time?
Pick another goal since there's no way that I can make these two numbers meet....

More Fun?
