ok ok, fine.... I need to fill you in... Without detail, I'm "fine". I'm not going to get into what exactly is "wrong" with me. Apparently I'm never going to be an olympian. So, now that we've established I have limitations, let's focus instead on what I CAN do. I will continue to train, to fight the good fight, to nap as needed, to remember that my snowflake melted, and that no matter what, my run will always be there for me.
Part of fighting the good fight is to try to build a little muscle mass.
I might be weak and bone weary tired, but at least I'll be less weak and tired.
So to clarify: last week I started 100 push ups.
Holy carp. On day 3 I was struggling to keep up. So I decided that I would repeat week one. No harm in that. It's a self paced program.
oh... and did you know there's something called "two hundred sit ups"and "One Fifty Dips" and "Two hundred squats" and "Twenty Five Pull-ups".... guess what I'm also starting this week?
No worries though. I've got this...
Dips – Level 1 – initial test 20
Push-ups – Level 1 – initial test 3
Sit-ups – level 5 – initial test 71
Squats – haven’t taken the initial test just yet, I’ll get that in today.
Pull-ups – level 0… there is no level Zero, Panda.
