I think I broke my muscles :(

I think I broke my muscles. My entire upper body is sore from my Push-up Challenge and it's only Day Two. I've been working on trying to get the proper form since Monday, but I still can't do them properly. I found a few tips on push-up progression online today...

My brother suggested that I do upper body weights at the gym to help build-up my arm strength. He also (along with EVERYBODY else that I asked for help with push-ups) suggested that I do the modified ones on my knees because I am, as he gently put it, "struggling to do them".

But I don't want to do the modified ones. I want to do the regular ones. So I'm having an internal temper tantrum about the whole thing. Maybe I should start with the incline push-ups??? I barely got through my attempts at 4 regular push-ups today (I've attempted 3 times), so I'm giving my broken muscles a break until tomorrow.

Today I took Kai to our favorite breakfast spot and had this amazing "really not on the training regime" breakfast...
French Toast with Strawberries :)

It's always easy to get Kai to give me a genuine selfie smile once I've fed her great food ;)

After we ate, we headed up to the BB&T center for the packet pick-up for the Wings for Life World Run event tomorrow. Kai and I got there really really early so the only thing set-up (apart from the packet pick-up station) was the map of the course for tomorrow's run...
The course goes all the way out to mile... SEVENTY FOUR!!!!

I got my race swag...

They already have the date set for 2016...
This really is for a great cause so I hope more and more people participate. Just being a part of a global run where everyone (no matter which country they are running in) starts at the same time is amazing!

What did you do to improve your push-up technique?

What's your favorite breakfast food?

Are you running/racing the weekend?

  1. You have to lift weights keeping in mind the end goal to get the muscle building machine going and in this manner keep any loss of muscle tissue. find more
