OK, the level of difficulty has increased for me. I did spend the entire weekend working in the yard (manual labor, I'm not pulling weeds or cutting the grass!) and for some reason even though I was off on Monday, I waited till the end of the day to do my pushups. Bad idea. I'm thinking that I should have done them earlier in the day. I ended up padding the 60 second breaks between sets and still failed miserably in the last set.
Week 2, day 1 was supposed to look like this:
- Minimum of 15
When I decided to take this challenge, I had a conversation with my friend Rick and he was reminding me the importance of breathing when doing pushups. Well, during Mondays routine, I was having a conversation with my wife while I was working out. I'm sure it was interesting, but the topic has since slipped my mind. During the last set of 15, I was really losing control, I stumbled on my breathing, and lost it at about 12 pushups. I was quite disappointed and quickly completed the remaining pushups immediately after collapsing to the ground.
In the end, I did complete the 63 pushups, but it wasn't as closely following the program as I would have liked.
