Follow through, C25k and 100 pushups - keepin' it strong
Saturday, May 14, 2011
Woo hoo! I actually got my butt out of bed this morning and followed through with what I said I would. I called my friend who was interested in this c25k program and we just did our first day. I am feeling tired, but oh so good!
This is what I need to remember...I am feeling strong!!
I should go back to last night - you see, I have been doing the 100 pushup challenge for about 4 weeks now. When you start off with that challenge, you do as many pushups as you can without stopping...I could do 15. On Thursday I did 130 pushups - these are sets of 23- 30 with a 90 second rest. I was pretty proud of myself. But yesterday was the day I saw just how strong I was getting! I can actually see "cuts" in my arms now. Yesterday was my test day on the 100 pushup challenge - to see how many I could do without stopping and guess how many....
42! Yes! I high fived my husband who had no idea why I was high fiving him. Then I told him I was seeing and feeling a difference and that I wanted to see that difference in my exercising daily. This is when I got my iphone out, found the C25k app and told him that I was going to do it.
And I did! It is amazing what our bodies can do with a little work and I can't wait to see how mine will change and become stronger.
Now off to celebrate with my cucumber water and my Glamour magazine. Happy Saturday everyone!!
