### Re: 10,000 pushups

8000 + 1 = 8001. Mwahahaha.

(I sorta forgot that I've seen this thread around. I'm working on the 100 pushups challenge thing (wk4), so I'll be able to post more as I go along.)

Edit: 8001 + 80 = 8081

I didn't think I'd make it today, but I did (albeit with somewhat excessively long breaks between the sets). It's definitely getting harder... I've gone from solidly in column 2 oven to struggling with col 1. Probably will have to repeat a week soon. (Actually maybe I'll repeat week 4 next but with shorter breaks.)

You have no idea how tempted I've been to do just that. ....

8081 + 10 + 15 = 8106

EDIT:

8106 + 23 = 8129

(btw, the 30-20-10-rinse-repeat pattern works really well)

I brushed my teeth as a warmup.
- No, son. I said 'duck'.

8313 + 55 = 8368

Rather less than I had last time, but I went back a bit in the program and that's done with actual 60-second breaks instead of something that would be better measured in minutes.

Set of 5 for a warmup, and two or three sets of 5 one arm push ups per side. Call it two.

Okay, Indy pulled a fast one there (was 8900 not 9000). So:

9065+15=9080
