Of Carrie’s 100-push ups challenge begins. So far it hasn’t been as hard as I expected. Not that it isn’t a challenge–I can definitely feel the burn. But at least I’ve been able to do the number of pushups according to the schedule. Today was the hardest so far, but I was still able to finish up with double the minimum on the final set. Yippee!
It was great timing for this, since I was also starting up with the Wii Fit. I didn’t really have much of a plan as to how I would divide up my time for various types of exercises, but with the push up program, I’ve figured it out. Push ups and other strength-building exercises 3 times a week, with walking or other aerobic-type exercises 3 to 4 times a week. I also do some of the yoga exercises on the strength-building days. On the aerobic days, I also try to do some of the yoga stretches and some balance exercises.
