100 Pushups - Week 4 Day 3

Okay, I was really, really nervous about how I would do today. The sets were 30, 22, 22, 20, max > 29, with 120 seconds between sets. I had already done 223 push ups this week, and spent the afternoon outside, in the heat, playing with my family at a friend's farm, not resting. Oh, and unlike my experience with previous weeks, I was sore going into today's sets.

But I did it. I got every single push up--and then some. With only 2 minutes between sets, I maxed at 35 push ups today after having completed 94! Somehow, I forgot that those extra 30 seconds between sets (30 seconds more than day 2's sets) makes all the difference. I'll have to remember that for next week.

Speaking of next week...

I thought I was scared of today's sets. Next week has me quaking in my proverbial moon boots. *cough*Rob*cough* Day 1's sets are 40, 32, 30, 25, max > 40. Are you joking? But before I get to week 4, I still need to do my exhaustion test this weekend. My goal is to get 50 push ups, which is more than double where I started (I got 21 push ups on my pretest...I've come a long way!), but I don't think it's unreasonable. Okay, it's unreasonable, but I still think I might be able to squeak out half a hundred. We'll see.

Heck, I've taken to wearing medium-size t-shirts to show off my newly aquired guns and pecs! (Not all the time...just when I think I can get away with it.) If you gots it, flaunt it!
