Pushing Our Luck: Week 1 Recap

If you’re just hearing about March’s Pushing Our Luck Challenge for the first time, it’s not too late to join in the fun.  Basically, we’re following the One Hundred Pushups Program and tweeting about our achievements: #pushingit.  Then, each Thursday, I’ll host a linky party for you to link up and share your recap post or add your Twitter ID.

So, I performed the initial test and vlogged about it which placed me at Week 3/Column 3.  Even with the multiple sets, Day 1 and Day 2 was a piece of cake was a cinch.  (I suppose I shouldn’t use cake metaphors when describing my workouts.)  I had a bit more difficulty with Day 3, but I finished each set strong.  Onto Week 4!  WOOT! WOOT!  Awwwwww….push it.  P-P-Push it real good!

Since the pushup challenge is only 3 days a week, I also threw in some ab exercises (200 reps) and planks (2 x 30 seconds) on my rest days.  I’m not crunching every day, but at least I’m still loving my abs.

How did you do?  Are you moving on or are you repeating a week?

Link up and share your pushup progress.  Also, remember to tweet #pushingit to share your reps and progress.
