100 Push Ups


 My latest goal: to be able to do 100 push ups in six weeks. Crazy? Perhaps, since I can hardly do five in a row right now. But I got the idea in my head from my Daily Mile buddy, Michael P of Singapore, and I can’t seem to get it out.

Why push ups? Well, as pointed out on hundredpushups.com, pushups
  • are great for your chest, abs, triceps, shoulders and torso
  • can be performed no matter where you are
  • don't require any special equipment
  • take very little time so no excuse not to do them!
Sounds like a great way to strengthen my core in preparation for Marathon training! For the next 6 weeks, I’ll follow the plan as outlined on hundredpushups.com. I’ll try to perform full push ups but will not beat myself up if I need to do the modified ones. Better modified than nothing, right?

I’ll do my best to post my progress along the way and maybe even figure out how to do a vlog of my push ups eventually once in a while.

Care to join me?  Any new challenges on your plate? Leave a comment and tell us about them!
