Pushup Blog (Inspire challenge)

Saturday, November 12, 2011

This week's Inspire Challenge:
I missed last week's challenge, but I'm glad to report full points for this week. I'm even down 1/2 lb. Yeah!

Inspire Challenge: main Challenge this week, post a blog on your progress in the c25k or 100pushups personal challenge form several weeks ago. For the bonus, try meditation twice this week.

Well, hubby & I followed the 100 push up challenge for 4 weeks. Missed one workout & never got back to it. I did, however, incorporate pushups into my regular strength training routine. This evening I did 24 in a row. When we started the push up challenge I could only do 8, so that's a big improvement.

I also get the bonus points for mediation. At least once a day for the past week, I closed my eyes, cleared my mind and concentrated on my breathe. Very calming!

    24 pushups is impressive! I'm still struggling to do just one and do it properly!

    Great job on the pushups! I'm quite envious about your ability to meditate as my mind keeps racing. Maybe it is something I really need to practice!

    I find the beginning and end of my yoga practise is so calming, sometimes so much so that tears will come and I don't know what I am releasing but feels great. that and bridge pose - cos it helps my back so much.
You are doing great, glad the weather has been good most days too. Not looking forward to winter and the ice. oh well will joyinky walk and dd treadmill and our recumbant bike when able.
