I am somehow surrounding myself in 100’s!
What is the push-up challenge?
Check it out here: http://hundredpushups.com/
Last Friday I did the initial test. I could only do 11 push-ups. (I could have done a few more but thought I would be compromising my form if I continued.) I also did the Week 1, Day 1 work-out. Which looks like this—>
So I did a total of 36 push-ups on Monday! Ouch!
Look into it. Give it a try! Challenge yourself.
What are 100 Ups?

I am doing this to try to teach myself to run more efficiently and NOT heel strike. So on the days I do my push-ups, I am also going to do 100 ups. I will try to do these every day, but if not I will at least do them in combo with my push-ups. Done. Committed. *If you think the 100 ups seem easy, you are wrong. I found myself starting on one end of the area rug and after 50ups having moved across the rug approximately 2 feet. Clearly, I was not landing in the same spot!
*I will probably not ever run barefoot. BUT, I know my running form is far from desirable and probably the cause of a lot of my leg problems.
Have any of you tried either of these exercises?
Who is gonna do this with me? You know you want to 🙂
