I did something which got me wanting to ask how often you guys find yourself involved in impromptu challenges which boost your confidence etc.
A friend of mine posted a status on Facebook the other day saying that for every like on his status he would do 5 pushups and that those who were brave enough should repost it.
Well, I went ahead and took up the challenge. I stipulated that they would not be consecutive, but that I would do each and every push up.
Well, come to it and he has to do 90 push ups with the amount of likes he got. I had to do 175 with the likes I got.
I was a little stunned. I figured I'd have an amount similar to his and didn't imagine I'd have to do almost twice as many. But I sucked it up and stayed true to my word. I did them all in one evening.
17 sets of 10 each with about 5 minutes in between to rest and a final set of 5.
By the end my arms were trembling and I was forcing myself to get them done, but I kept good form, avoided injuries and actually did it. I was really proud of myself.
So come on, what challenges have you accidentally gotten yourselves into?
Unecumque homo est, ibi benifico locus est - Seneca.
It is the duty of a gentleman to know how to ride, to shoot, to fence, to box, to swim, to row and to dance. He should be graceful. If attacked by ruffians, a man should be able to defend himself, and also to defend women from their insults ---
