Pushin' it.

Have you heard of the 100 Push Up Challenge? I learned about it on Workout Mommy and after visiting the site and reading the details of the challenge, I decided to take it. After all, how cool would it be to actually be able to drop and do 100 push ups? In a row! I'd be so impressed with myself.

I took the initial test last week and I squeaked out 17 good form push ups. Yes, the full-on push ups, not the bent-knee kind! So, with that information, I started the challenge today. It requires a commitment of three days a week for six weeks. Check it out -- and check back to see how I am doing because I'll post updates throughout the challenge. Unless, of course, I can't move my arms to type . . .

Thanks! I'm hoping to be able to do at least 20 -- if not more! -- by the end of the second week of the challenge. We'll see how it goes :-)

Hey Felice! Just discovered your blog(s)! Quite fun. And I see how the two of 'em feed each other, a nice balance.
Good luck with the Challenge, and I'm gonna look it up myself. Been a slug since I got back Stateside.
See ya before Glenn's wedding!

My arms are a bit sore -- well, they feel more like they worked out really hard. Which they did! I feel a lot better than I thought I would. But, I've only completed one day -- there is no telling how I'll feel after day 2, or week 2, or week 6!

MizFit -- Armparamedics! I could go for those.

Denis -- Definitely try the challenge. It is TOUGH. But, I have to believe it is a good workout. Thanks for checking out my blogs!
