Project FB - Day 6 - Quest for 20 Pushups
Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Tonight was one heckuva workout. I ran 1.25 miles on my treadmill as a warmup, did a 26 minute boot camp workout, 21 minute abs workout, and then stretched it out. I felt very spent by the end of this... and then I remembered the 20 pushups.
I have a streak going - for the last 151 days straight I have done at least 20 pushups each day - without fail. Tonight I almost decided to let that streak die.
I begrudgingly decided to try. My first attempt yielded 6 pushups. UGH. Sore and exhausted. Then 4 more, then 4 more. Ok we are at 14 - this is now doable. 2 more... 16! But i honestly didnt think I could squeeze out even 1 more with good form.
So... Facebook to the rescue. I sat up, read about what is going on with my friends and family. Yippee! A baby is on the way tonight! My cousin Mitch and his wife Lauren are welcoming their first baby, a girl Zoey, tonight.
Well... I got a second wind. If Lauren could push a baby out I had to be able to push 4 pushups out. And I did! 5, actually.
Mission accomplished! I only hope it's as easy for Lauren tonight
