100 Push-Ups: Week #3

August 12th, 2008 | 2 Comments | Posted in fitness

It was self-test time this week.  I was able to crank out 29 pushups this go-around.  I started the challenge being able to do 21….a 38% increase from day one.

29 pushups puts me in the 3rd column workouts for week 3…and that’s going to make it pretty rough.  I did my first workout of the week last night (25-17-17-15-25).  The first 4 sets went well, but the last set of 25 got the better of me.  While I was able to do 18 normally, I had to finish the last 7 on my knees.

If I do the same tomorrow night (workout #2 for week 3), I feel that I’ll probably need a do-over for week 3.

100 Push-Ups: Week #2

August 4th, 2008 | 1 Comment | Posted in fitness

Week one was a success!  I was pretty sore after the first 2 workouts, but that seems to have passed now.  The first workout of week 2 has gone well.  I think I should should be able to make it through this week fairly easily, but looking ahead to week 3 (if I stay in the 3rd column after my week 2 test) scares me a bit.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
