100 Pushups - Week 5 Day 3

Adios week 5! Hola week 6!

Due to hectic schedules that included choir practice, a campout, Scout meetings, and general exhaustion, (this whole weekend was an exhaustion test!) I wasn't able to do my day 3 sets on Friday or Saturday. So Sunday night at 9:30, I got back from my last meeting and knew I had do try.

20, 20, 24, 24, 22, 22, 20, > 50

You want me to max at over 50 push ups after doing... I tally numbers in my head...twice...and come up with different numbers each time...and get a calculator...152 push ups? Surely you can't be serious! (I am serious. And don't call me Shirley.)

But I did. I got every rep of every set, then maxed at 51. So long, week 5! (At last!)

I don't know whether it was because I waited until Sunday, or that I took the week off before this, or whether Steve Speirs' modifications to the program really did the trick. Whatever it was, I'm glad and proud.
