- Several cups of coffee
- A few minutes of watching scary adrenaline-rush scenes from a movie
- 10 warm up push ups
- 80 push ups
- pause for 15 seconds
- 20 push ups
Done! I wanted to do it, and I did. There's a small voice that tells me that the 15-second rest period was a cheat and I didn't 'really' pass. What I figure is, if I only needed to stop for 15 seconds, then I could have gone on and done another week of prep and passed straight through. I'm taking a shortcut here, but it's so minor as to not tarnish the icon up on my sidebar. I figure I earned it.
Note: In another nine days, it will be a full year since I first tried, and failed, to do one single full body push up.
