Challenge #3: Sarah vs. Planking

The latest choice from my list of ways to make a dick of myself before turning 30 was to take on the craze of planking - also known as the art of laying face down somewhere you probably shouldn't.

This was certainly the case at 8.30am on a Sunday morning when, let's face it, all normal people were either warmly tucked up in bed asleep or enjoying an early morning shag.

Not me. I was laying face down on a giant pork pie, in the cold, without a drop of caffeine having touched my lips...

Yes, I know it looks like a beer barrel, but it's a pork pie.

I know what you're thinking, that it looks easy and shouldn't even be on the list. Well, let me tell you, at 8.30 on a Sunday morning it was a difficult challenge and it was also fucking cold, as the lid of the 'pie' is actually metal rather than wood. You're also lucky I'm not wearing my pyjamas and slippers, because it was a serious consideration at one point.

I took this one so that you would know the above picture wasn't of my stunt double.

Verdict: WIN!


  1. Hhahaha you crazy lady!!! I'd LOVE to see you do that on a weekday morning at 8.30am please with all the daily commuters part of the challenge possibly, embarrass the fuck outta yourself, go on! Loving it though, you go girl!

  2. hahahaha love it! i agree with Dina! that would be sooo funny! Hats off to you for doing it Sunday early morning whilst i was in bed :o and yess that does look like a beer barrel :s

  3. Lol, well if you ladies want to join me for planking with an audience I'd be happy to oblige! Any Leicester landmarks we can take on?? Maybe we can combine rollerskating with planking somehow...

  4. Haha Laura said 'me and you will plank on the floor, with our rollerskates on!' and Lucy will plank everywhere because she will be drunk!
