February 11 - Oops Got Off Track & FIRST PUSHUP!

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Ive missed a week of blogging but not much has been going on.

I did however, do my first REAL pushup a few days ago! Ive never been able to do one. What helped me to be able to finally do this in 35 years?


Yes, you read that right! Ryan, my trainer every time he gives me a strength training routine, planks are part of it. Ive never had any upper body strength before, I attribute part of this with being born with cerebral palsy.

My parents never signed me up for gymnastics or ballet because they always told me, "You dont havd the strength to do it".

Ya'll Im not gonna lie, I about dang near cried when I did that first pushup.

In the last few days Ive been able to do 5 - 6 in a row.

I may never do something like half marathon but if I can continue to build strength to do more pushups emoticon
