Today is the big day – day one of the 3rd week. After yesterday’s exhaustion test I’ll be starting in column one of this week’s regimen.
That means today’s workout was 15, 12, 12, 10, 15(max) pushups. Even though I’ve been progressing, this seemed like quite a bump for me, but what else can I do but give it a shot?
I got home from work, drank plenty of water and then started the sets off. The first set of 15 was no problem. The second set of 12 was done in no time. The third set of 12 got a little harder. The next to last set of 10 was a struggle. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to finish the set, but I did. The last set of 15 was even harder. I went steadily until about 10 pushups. At ten they became a bit more labor intensive.
Pushups 11-15 were extremely difficult. On 15 I pushed up about half of the way, and then struggled with my arms to make them push up the rest of the way. I did it!
Well, I made it through today’s workout, but with how much I struggled on those last couple sets today, I’m afraid I might not make it through the next one. Stay tuned – will it be a train wreck – or will I make it through another day?
Here’s the progress chart for the challenge:
