Gotta share this – I’m about to burst! Today, while doing my Power 90 Sculpt circuit this morning, I did the pushups on my toes !!!! This is big stuff!
At first I could only do 5 regular in part one, 5 wide in part two and in part three you are supposed to do 10 wide, 10 close and 10 regular. Well, I did 5 wide, just sort of hunched my shoulders down 5 times for the close ones and then 5 regular.
After 64 days consistently following the P90 program, I could do 15 in each of part one & two and 10 of each style in part three. Although the close ones are still not pretty in form, I think they would still be classified as push ups…
I have to admit, I’m back to doing 5 reps but that’s okay because now I know I’ll work up to the max if I just keep doing it.
Later in the morning, I took Shelby to Harmon Field for Day2Week5 of the C25K program. Warm up walk, jog 8 minutes (that’s eight minutes? Yes, I said eight minutes – I know, right?) walk 5, jog 8. It was tough but I did it (yea!)
My mind swung like a pendulum between feeling amazing that I was able to jog not uncomfortably for the prescribed time, then I found I was psyching myself out – thinking about Day 3 coming up on Friday – warm up walk for 5 minutes then jog for 20 minutes (!!). Thinking I’ll never be able to do that. Then thinking, “Heck yes I can – I didn’t think I could do any of this!” If I survive, I’ll tell ya all about it.
