Today I started the 100-pushup challenge
. I know. ME?! Yes. I’m not even doing it because I particularly want to do 100 pushups. I’m doing it because I am pretty positive there is no way in heaven or Earth that I can possibly do 100 pushups in a row. NO WAY. So I’m forcing myself to do this so I can prove the challenge faulty and that some people are just not made to do 100 pushups. Ever.
I had heard about the challenge before, but ignored it due to its total implausibility. Then someone mentioned they were forming a group on tumblr for people who wanted to do the challenge. I made some comment about how it was ridiculous. Then they invited me to the group. And I joined. And decided ehhh why not. What do I have to lose besides a few minutes every day?
I started today and it actually wasn’t too bad. The site tells me exactly how many pushups I need to do each day. Today I did 5 sets of 6, 6, 4, 4, 10. The last set you just do as many as you can. And I did 10! Woot! That’s 1/10 of my goal! And I didn’t die, which actually kind of surprised me.
Then I got to thinking… What if I do end up completing the challenge? What if I can do 100 pushups in a row? Will I end up looking like this??
But hopefully not so green? I don’t know if I even want to be able to do 100 pushups. Won’t that make me like some sort of super human or something? But. I cannot turn down a challenge. So if it makes me into the Hulk, so be it.
Ugh, my arms are starting to hurt already. We’ll see how long this lasts.
