Yikes

Holy neglecting my blog. So apparently I havent blogged since last Tues...whoops. I guess theres a lot I could be updating people on. The main things are of course fitness related. My leg/achillies is feeling a lotttt better so I ran 3 days in a row last week and took the weekend off and ran again today. So thats pretty, pretty awesome. I was driving to work today and it got cold again so I was blasting my heat and by the time I got close to my work I was like man this car is still freezing! I had forgotten that 2 days ago when it was high 60's I was too hot so I had switched from heating to cooling. What a difference. Last time I ran it was shorts and with sunglasses, today it was sweatpants/sweatshirt a winter hat and a prayer that the winds and rain didn't get me sick. I also stumbled across an awesome challenge that I have decided to partake in. Dangle The Carrot is holding a 100 pushup challenge over the course of 6 weeks, and having recently told my blogging friends that I was up to 50 pushups, I was like...yes I will. Today was my first day of training and it involved doing 5 sets of pushups in with 60 seconds of rest in between. The sets were supposed to be 14, 18, 14, 14 and then max for my last set. (I'm starting at week 3, cause I'm that badass) I rounded up and did 15's and 20's and then for my max I cranked out a screaming 35 pushups. It was hell. I really like this challenge, next I'm going to push myself for a pullup challenge (hate doing pullups.) No better way to get results then to make you do stuff you hate.

  3. I'm a blog slacker too, especially when the weather warms up. Good luck on your challenge!
    I'm in a sit up challenge and I think I've done like 10 in the last week. I'm not going to win....

  4. Hi Jameson,
    I am glad that you are feeling better and are running again:) I am trying to do the pushup challenge too!! However, I am not not the badass
    that you are:) I really wasn't sure how it was all going to play out until Jeff posted the schedule. I am still at 35 and it is tough. For a few days I was trying to do 35 in a row three times a day and my arms hurt so flipping bad! Anyway, good luck to you...I am sure you will do awesome!
