The little gap makes a big difference

Quote du jour: "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." - E.B. White*

It's funny. The push ups for today seem so much easier than the ones I did on Sunday. I try not to add up the total until I've done them (otherwise it's more intimidating) but today I'm doing 20 more push ups than I did last time. 45 seconds might seem like a short amount of time when it comes to some things, but when it comes to push ups it makes a big difference.

Exercise du jour:
Week 6 of the (full) 100 push up challenge
Day 2
(45 seconds rest in between)
Set 1 - 14
Set 2 - 14
Set 3 - 15
Set 4 - 15
Set 5 - 14
Set 6 - 14
Set 7 - 10
Set 8 - 10
Set 9 - 44!!!
Done! Though by the end, the count sounded like "forty-one............ forty-two............. forty-three..........forty.......four....."
Plus, walked 2-1/2 miles
