4 D3W1 (HPC): Another Day, Another Challenge


I have zero time to write this, so here it goes, really fast!

Today's pushup workout called for intervals of 15, 13, 10, 10, & a max of atleast 15 pushups. Here's what I did: 15, 13, 10, 10, 30.

I doubled the minimum max on the last set - Who-hoooo! I'm definitely getting stronger.

And before you say anything, yes I realize that I didn't post about yesterday's pushup workout. That's because I didn't do it until today. I got sidetracked by my day off. ;-)

Hope you're all having a great Wednesday! Bye!

Hi Guys,
Thanks for all your comments! Below are my responses:

@Simon Anderson: Yes, I do feel that the pushups help my running. Arm strength is important for propulsion. ;-) Also pushups work more than just the arms, they also work your torso & your abs, all of which have excellent running-related benefits.

So, re you considering doing the hundred pushups workout? ;-)

@Johnny: Thanks so much & welcome! I visited your blog, (which BTW, is excellent -- it's well written, funny, & highly amusing -- yes, I've subscribed!) & see that you're making excellent progress in your Couch-to-5K program! Great job! I can see that you've got the right stuff (i.e., determination, belief in yourself, follow-thru, & a great sense of humor!) to see your CT5K/C25K program through to the very end & achieve your goals.

@cymrusteve: Thanks! I see you're almost done with the program yourself! So what's next for you, in terms of maintaining/improving your arm strength?!

Yes, the "pushup queens" is indeed growing! Feel free to mention it to other ladies who've signed up for the Hundred Pushups program! ;-)

Hope you had a nice 15 mile run this morning! Wow!
