While reading others' blog entries the other day, one in particular caught my eye. It was a lady who was saying that she finally did one-armed push ups. I had to comment if only to say "wow" because even though I've been doing push ups for a year now, I can only do 7, maybe 8 regular ones. I can do 38 modified.
I do push ups a couple of times a week, but haven't really committed myself to progressing. Funny thing is, I REALLY, REALLY want to be able to do a lot of them. It's just a goal, like running was, that felt unreachable. I'm running now and it seems this is the next thing on a list of things I'm going to confront head on. Swimming may be next (ah!)
A blog lady recommended a website to me called One Hundred Push Ups. I signed up to log my progress and tomorrow will be my first day of my new goal of one completing one hundred push ups! I'm interested to know how my initial test comes out, but since I already pushed up (LOL) this morning, I'm going to wait until tomorrow to get a true read on where I stand before I hit Week 1.
Wish me luck!
