These days of rest are difficult, because really, whatever I didn’t do the day before, in my mind is up for grabs on my days of rest. But, alas, all the books and peoples and websites say rest is important. Normally, I’d run myself into the ground before I rested, but I’m learning new stuff.
So, Monday’s are always days of rests, simply because I probably went out and pushed myself hard over the weekend, at least one day or another.
Last night however, I figured, there’s other stuff I can be doing, it’s almost like resting, because it’s not that hard. HA! that’s what I thought, it’s not that hard…
I’ve been reading blogs as I get the chance and someone mentioned something about the hundred push up challenge and then GeekGrl posted about doing a whole 2 pushups and that brought to the front of my mind the hundred push up challenge.
What this is, is a 6 week training plan to take you from how ever many push ups you can do at a time (for me this was 5, that’s 5 good form push ups) to being able to do 100 consecutive push ups.
I figure, this is actually good because I’ll build upper body strength, which is going to help me, I think, in swimming. I don’t ever think I’ve been so excited to be doing push ups, but something about being able to do 100 in a row, that’s pretty cool. That, and it’s a challenge.
