Week 1, Day 1

Please ignore the two week delay in actually beginning the 100 push up challenge. I did the first intervals on the arm of the futon, as I did the initial test. But I moved to the kitchen counter because I wasn't able to get the proper depth on the futon arm. I managed 5 total at the last set. I'm going to keep going with the counter for a bit, then try moving up to a lower prop. Matt was a good cheerleader, monitoring my arm angle and saying "go go go go" when I was flagging. Besides telling me "you've always got TWO MORE in you!"

PS~My triceps feel like jelly. I'm having slight difficult lifting my glass.

PPS~It's fantastic.

Well, I'm happy to take your word for it. Go you.

Is it the post-pushup feeling that's fantastic... or what's in the glass?

Sorry, couldn't resist! Well done you!

My word verification is "ampowee", which is pleasingly onomatopoeic, don't you think? Might almost be a post-pushup exclamation...

Well, it was a fantastic mojito, but they usually make my head wobbly, not my arms.

"AMPOWWEE!" Sounds like a superhero made up by a three year old. Or what I should yell when I make it to ten successive push ups.
