Well...today was day one for me. If I can't get out and run - due to my cough - I may as well get this started!
I had done a few "Initial Tests" over the past few months. On any given day I was able to muster out between 10 to 15 consecutive push ups (will I really be able to work up to 100 in as little as six weeks???). Since I'm still a bit low-energy, I decided to go conservative on Week 1, and choose the middle column (for those who did 6-10 in their initial tests instead of those who did 11-20 in their initial tests). Today's workout was five sets of push ups with 60 seconds of rest in between each set. Sets of 6, 6, 4, 4 and then as many as I could do (ended up being 9). So I did 29 push ups total.
I'm hoping to do push ups on my off days from running going forward - running 4 days a week and push ups 3 days a week (once I'm back to a clean bill of health!). It's a mighty ambitious schedule since I haven't run much in the past two weeks, but I think I can stick to it.
