November 29th

I felt pretty crappy this morning but once I got up, took some ibuprofen, and walked around around a bit to clear my sinuses, I felt better. My voice is back to a rasp today, much better than the whisper, but I've tried not to use it too much today. (And everyone who knows me in real life can stop rolling their eyes...)

I did Week 3, Day 3 of the 100 pushups challenge, plus 100 crunches.

11+13+9+9+23=65 pushups.

It's not 30 minutes but it's all I'm going to do tonight.

My little guy is home this weekend for a change, so he made dinner, under my supervision. He loves cooking and can already cook quite a few things. He'll make a good husband some day. Tonight he made penne with chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, and cheese. It's cooking now and smells delish! I put the recipe on my blog.

I hope I feel better tomorrow...

Oh, I almost forgot, I bought new runners today. I tried on about 5 different pairs but ended up buying the same ones I already have - Saucony Pro-Grid Triumph 4. They were the only ones that felt good, AND they were on sale because they were last year's model. What's not to like about that?!

The old ones, which have about 640 km on them, are on the left. They don't look as dirty in that picture as they are in real life. I guess I'll have to move my speed laces over to the new shoes. As you can see on the old shoes, I also have to start lacing my shoes higher up than usual, because I get pain on the top of my foot if there is any pressure there at all.

Sad to say, I did not go for my long run today but I may go for an easy short run to break them in tomorrow.

Tell me a more about this push up challenge. You listed 1+13+9+9+23=65
push ups. I don't quite understand those sequence set numbers (assuming they are sets) Did you do 1 then 13 the 9 etc.? If so the 23 as the final set is quite impressive.

Uh, the first had 10. :) I had to do the numbers in the first 4 sets, and the last set is the maximum I can do.

It's the 100 Pushups Challenge, a 6 week progression towards being able to do 100 consecutive pushups.

I challenge you!
