Everyone seems to be doing the Push-up Challenge. I was feeling left out. In some ways, I'd really like to do this. However, I stink at push-ups. Really stink at them. Probably worse than *anyone* reading this. I took the initial test and could only do two. Sigh.
You totally stink at push-ups. You'll never be able to do it.
I have never really understood why I have such a hard time with good form push-ups. I thought it was mostly arm/shoulder strength. You'd think with the swimming, that I'd be able to do these. I'd really like to get better at them.
Since when have you given up on a challenge? If you put your mind to it and work hard at it, you can do this.
Yesterday I did Week 1 Day 1. When I woke up this morning my Abs were killing me. Not my arms. Not my shoulders. My Abs. And tomorrow I'm supposed to start with four (4) push-ups. Huh?!?
Quit while you still have some dignity. You're a loser. You'll never make it through Day 2
So I did a little research on push-ups, and sure enough, it works the core. My core strength is poor. Maybe this is just what I need.
Modify the plan if needed. Don't worry how long it takes.
At this point, I'm thinking maybe I could just repeat Week 1, Day 1 tomorrow and again on Monday. And then from that point on, try moving through the plan as written. Does that even make sense?
Don't give up. You can do this.
