It was perfect running weather today - blue skies, forty degree weather, and daffodils were actually starting to bloom. It was really hard to take the day off, but I'm really glad I did, and it's not because D and I have a 13 mile run tomorrow. I'm glad because I ended up doing TEN PUSH UPS IN A ROW.
I recognize ten push ups in a row isn't exactly a lot for most people, but before December I had never done one real push up. After my ten in a row today, I felt like I'd conquered something huge. In some ways, push ups are a lot harder for me than running a half marathon. Besides, running has conditioned me to expect medals, so where is mine?? (jk!)
Kidding aside, it feels great to know I can [barely] do double digit push ups. I even think I could have gotten in another one or two at the end, but I decided I'd rather finish my daily challenge strong than end up crying during the run tomorrow. So today was: 10 real push ups x 15 knee push ups x 5 real push ups x 15 knee push ups x 5 real push ups x 15 knee push ups, with no stopping in the middle of the real push ups. Watch out Michelle, I'll catch up to your 25 push ups yet.
