Week 2, day 3's schedule looks like this:
- minimum of 20
So, this was supposed to be 81 pushups and I only made it to 79.
Because I have been doing excessive manual labor for 2 -3 hours each day after work, and most of Saturdays and Sundays (except this weekend since it's my birthday) I am going to take a few extra days off before doing the progress test and starting week 3. The annoying pain in my arm and hand is gone, but my back has been KILLING me! I have always had back issues, so I am not relating that to the pushup challenge.
I also feel strongly that I need to add something else to my routine. I am going to try and get up even earlier than I already do -- before the sun is up!! -- and get back into the elliptical for 30 minutes every morning. I also feel that scheduling the pushup training at the end of my day, even though I sit all day long, is not quite working out.
So there are some changes to come for me for week 3.
In addition to that, some friends of mine learned of my pushup challenge and came across the "Perfect Pushup" at a rummage sale (happy birthday to me!), so I'll be starting with those in week three.
