100 Pushup Challenge Part 4. (or 3 depending on which way you look at it)

I’ve now had 2 double Gins so if this is incoherent gibberish just read every 4th word to come up with something that makes sense.

The Pushup Challenge is going ok I guess. I’m not thrilled and excited about my progress because frankly by this point I expected a bit more out of myself. However, I think, through no fault of my own I haven’t been able to achieve that imaginary goal I had because of my gammy shoulder. If you’re just now joining the topic – my left shoulder is held together with a large screw and a metal plate and a couple of tendons robbed from elsewhere in said shoulder due to a serious mountain biking injury I had a couple of years ago. Therefore I think to expect it to be able to raise and lower my entire body weight 100 times is asking a bit too much and despite many weeks of building myself up to it gradually I am unable to do a full proper pushup so I have reached the decision to just complete this challenge by doing girly pushups. I feel like a bit of a cop out doing this but it is listed as an alternative method of completing the task on the 100 pushup website – therefore I shall make my excuses and go with it.

As rubbish as I feel for copping out I guess I do have some triumph in that in the beginning I was unable to do a single girly pushup and now I’m doing sets of at least 10 so I have made progress.

Anyway – as I said – fuelled by Gin, so it’s a bit drawn out but here’s the video!

    I still can’t do a single one.

    So when are you off to THE OUTER HEBRIDES?

    LOL… he’s still on about it and it’s still making me laugh. Mid August…It’s going to be a right old adventure.

  3. I love how you two can make each other laugh so much.

    He’s good fun, I’m an easy laugh – I guess thats a good combo!

    These videos are great. I somehow had a picture of you based on that avatar so found it hard to imagine you as a mum of a 10-year old. 🙂

    Also inspiring. I need to start doing more push-ups :-/

    I find it hard to imagine I’m a mum to a 10 year old too! Glad you find it inspiring.. it does feel wonderful to catch a reflection in a window or mirror and see I have some shape to my previously noodle like appendages.
