100 Push ups : Week 1 : Pushing through the pain
Oh man. I was still hurting from the initial test on Monday, 4 days after I took it. I had serious doubts on whether I would be able to continue the program faithfully. Partly chicken and partly due to dinner with friends from out of town, I missed Day 1’s set on Monday.
On hindsight I think that was a good idea as it allowed me to rest fully before I started officially on Day 2. Day 2, Wednesday was really hard to get going. I was tired from work and still stiff.
I almost missed Day 3 Friday! It almost slipped my mind. However I’m glad I did the reps as I could tell that this time the push ups were a lot smoother. After the complete set, all the relevant muscles felt tight instead of pain.
So Week 1 was really tough to get going. I had to really planned it into my busy life if not it was too easy to forget. I’m feeling good about it today, no pain but a little stiffness, however as I got off to a bumpy start, I’ve decided to run week 1’s program again next week.
