5 D2W3 (HPC): Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow! And Oh Yeah, Let Me Add Just One More: "Ow!" ;-)
Let me just start out this morning's post by saying, "#*$&% #$@*%!!!!" ;-)
I'll just let you just use your imagination for that one. ;-)
Anyhow, moving forward, I would just like to say that I'm not cursing out my pal, Cymrusteve, (a.k.a., the one & only fabulous creator of the Hundred Pushups Challenge that's been all the rage lately), just in case he was wondering. Rather, those are grunts of pain that I'm expressing. ;-)
Steve, I know my triceps will be thanking you at some point, but right now, they are feeling like two crumpets that've fallen out of a bakery's second-story window, have hit the pavement, & have been subsequently squashed underfoot by a ten thousand passerbys. ;-)
So, here's today's workout plan: 27, 19, 19, 15, max 25+ (rest 90 s)
And here's what I did: 27, 19, 19, 15, 30.
The first interval I knocked out relatively quickly, but the second & third intervals became increasingly more difficult; and I have to say, the last few pushups of the third set were of questionable form. Like Steve's previous pushups workout, I just wanted to get them done as quickly as possible! However, by the fourth set, I rallied & regained some of my energy. By that point, it was a relief to only have to do 15! ;-)
I have no idea where I got the strength to complete the final set, but I managed to do 25 consecutive pushups, rested for a brief second, & then eked out 5 more, for a grand total of 30 pushups.
OK, now I'm going to go into a corner & crumple up into a little ball for a moment. ;-)
Never have I been more thankful to have completed a workout before in my life!
