Saturday was day 3 of week 3 in my 100 pushup challenge. As I mentioned in a previous post I failed on the last set – only making it to 10 of the required 16 minimum pushups, although I did complete the pushups from my knees. This week I’m doing week 3 over.
I didn’t get to the pushups until almost 10pm on Monday, at which time I was already pretty tired. The sets for today calls for sets of 15, 12, 12, 10 and a final set of at least 15.
I started out with the set of 15, and noticed that once again I was pretty sore still from Saturday’s pushups.
After the two sets of 12 and the 10 I was struggling.
The last set I struggled mightily from 10 on, but I was able to push out 16 pushups.
I’m repeating week 3 this week, but after doing that set i think it actually felt harder doing it this time. Is that even possible? Could it be that my weekend off for vacation took that much of a toll on me?
After doing my pushups I got out our “Biggest Loser” workout video to get in a quick cardio workout as well. As far as I’m concerned the high-intensity cardio workout on that DVD is pretty tough, and it gets me sweating every time!
Stay tuned everyone – tomorrow I’ll have something for you all – related to the 100 pushups challenge. Check back here for an update!
