It Feels SO Good!

“Working hard becomes a habit, a serous kind of fun. You get self-satisfaction from pushing yourself to the limit, knowing that all the effort is going to pay off.”
Mary Lou Retton (gymnastics)

On Monday I pushed myself like never before (except the races I’ve run).  We were asked to do as many push-ups in a min as we could then 4 times throughout the hour better the number.  I first got 59, then 61, then 67 then 70. They weren’t all the best quality push-ups but my arms were bending and I felt every one of them, for 3 days! We still did our regular 4 sets of 30 push-ups also and our regular boot-camp workout.  That’s over 350 push-ups in the hour. I’ve never sweated so much and was on the verge of nauseous at the end.  It felt AMAZING!!!  I need to push myself more often.  What a rush!
