Back at it

So after 2 1/2 days off, I'm jumping right back into it. I did 10 pushups on Tuesday and 10 on Wednesday, so I have a few extra pushups to do over the next couple days. I realized at 9:00 pm on Thursday that feeling better means hitting the deck, so I dropped and did a set of 40-- my record for most in a set yet. I guess breaks have their benefits. I'm going to get about 150 pushups done and call it a night. Tomorrow has to be a 500+ day. I better stop typing and get to work.

One thing that will stop me from doing pushups is a 100.2 degree fever.

They Just Don't Understand

My body has gotten used to the hundreds of push-ups every day; however, I'm still quite uncomfortable with the looks people give me when I hit the deck in public. I guess they just think I'm trying to be a macho-man, especially when I have a date right next to me. Whatever. They don't know my reasoning for doing push-ups randomly, and being a macho-man isn't a BAD thing, is it?

Locals are going to have to get used to seeing me drop and do twenty or thirty at the most random times. Confused looks from people and whispered comments such as "show off" aren't going to stop me from reaching my goal.

A New Push-Upper Takes Over

And It's About Time.

Nearing the end of 2013 I toyed with the ultra-stupid idea of going for 1,000,000 push-ups by the time I turned 50. This, however, would have taken too much time away from other pursuits, like making enough money to feed my kids. Or paying for a series of cartilage replacement operations.

Enter The Nephew.

My sister's kid Brendan has declared me an inspiration and has committed to doing 75,000 pushups by the end of 2015. Lunacy all around, but it's nice to have some company.

Welcome Brendan. Best of luck.

Make sure your health insurance policy covers cartilage replacement procedures.

75,000 Pushups 2015

So my uncle's 100,000 pushup farce has inspired me to challenge myself and do 75,000 pushups by the end of 2015. Started a little late, but better late than never. I'll try to do posts day-by-day, if not that then week-by-week. -Brendan T.
