4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Going for 100 pushups

leave a comment »

Inspired by LIRunner9 at http://trainingfornycmarathon2009.blogspot.com/, and some others I’ve seen write about it, I’ve decided to try the One Hundred Pushups training program.  I get to the gym sometimes, but not as often as I like, so 100 pushups seems to be a great way to strengthen the arms in a way that I can’t seem to do in my limited workouts at the gym – it’s easy enought to do at home too.  My only worry is that when I’ve tried to do lots of pushups in the past, I run into pain in my wrist.

When I made it to the gym yesterday, I was able to do 15 pushups as my initial test.  Next step is to begin the 3 times per week program, and see if it works!  Of course, today, my arms are totally sore from the 15 initial pushups (and my full workout afterwards), so I’ll need to wait until tomorrow or Wednesday to get started…
