March Challenge: Pushing Our Luck

My Twitter running tweeps (@ForrestGump49er  @runningrealtor1 @amanda_mowry @runningmom2boys @runmama2girls @SeeKateRun1 ) and I love a good challenge.  I think we have an addiction to challenges.  100 Ab exercises?  No problem.  I’ll see your 100 and raise you 100 more.  Yes, it’s an addiction and it may be time for an intervention, but not before we start another challenge!

For March, we are Pushing Our Luck by taking on the One Hundred Push Ups Program.  Of course, we’ll still be working the abs, but if you follow #pushingit, you will be able to follow our push-ups progress and join our Twitter support group.

To begin the Pushing Our Luck Challenge, you have to first perform the One Hundred Push Ups’ initial test to determine your level and starting point.  I vlogged my performance test, so you can get a good laugh an idea on how it works.


That’s right. I do girlie alternate push-ups and there ain’t no shame in that. Hate the game, not the player.

So, 30+ alternate push-ups are still push-ups as defined by Steve Spiers (the mastermind behind One Hundred Push Ups) which places me at Week 3, Day 1, Column 3 for the start of our March challenge.

Where will you start? 

Perform your test. Write up a post or make a vlog, whichever you prefer, and then swing back here to link up share your post.  Please be sure to add the Pushing Our Luck button to your post and link it back to Run DMT to help spread the word about our March challenge.

Then, follow the One Hundred Push Ups program each week by doing your predetermined level of push-ups three days a week.

As for me, I will be starting Day 1 tomorrow (Friday, March 2) to be on schedule for our weekly linky party every Thursday in March, which will include a full report of my progress and a linky.  I would love for you to share your progress each week too.

Remember to tweet #pushingit to share your reps and progress.

Hope this makes sense!

    oh, no, no, no, no, no….no alternate push-ups here. (Like i should talk – i’d need oxygen after 1) I think a real challenge would be standing on your hands aganist the wall and then do 20 push ups….(sadist, i know)

    This sounds like such a great idea!! I’m going to check it out a little bit more and then I’ll be back to decide if I am up for the challenge! You aren’t the only one that does “girlie” pushups! I’ll graduate to military style one day 🙂
