My friend Karma at Insperspire posted about a little something she and Jimmy Spin are doing - 100 push ups challenge. Some of you super buff people are probably thinking, "only 100? I can do that in my sleep." And I reply with a genuine and heartfelt, "Hooray for you!"
I, on the other hand, can barely eek out 15 decent pushups in one shot. I'm still making sad attempts at the Hard Core Club, but struggled a bit in the 2 weeks after my half marathon ( I think I strained an ab when I had a wicked side cramp so core work hurt for a while).
Is it just me or in the illustration above are his knees are a little too far forward. Maybe not?
I have to admit the squats challenge feels more like it's within reach for me. I've always had really strong legs
nicely insulated by layers of cellulite so I'm trying to make sure I'm using proper form instead of just surviving like I'm doing with the pushups.
The kids have even joined in the fun and done some of the work outs with me. If I'm fast enough with the Flip, I'll catch a video of them. It's a hoot watching Shane do pushups!
I have to say that not having the pressure of a big race hanging over my head is kind of nice and even fun. I can do things like this and not worry too much about saving my legs for a long run or a race. It's going to be a fun winter! I can just feel it! :D
Welp, I finished my Week 2 workout this afternoon so I just have 4 weeks to go! Wish me luck!
