Spring Into Action – Buff Brazen Bunnies

Spring In2 Action

I’m not normally a bouncy person, so this “spring” business?  Interesting.  Especially first thing in the morning, but I’m excited about the new challenge and my teammate, Bari.  Spring into Action is going to last 6 weeks.  In those six weeks I will be within a couple of weeks of my next half marathon and be a pushup queen.  Because that’s the fitness challenge.  To participate in the 100 pushup challenge.  I did this last year but lost momentum in the last week or so.  I think I got up to 80 pushups and gave up because I just did 80 pushups from my toes! And that’s awesome in and of itself.  This time I’m going to do whatever it takes to hit that magical 100 number.

So my goals for this challenge are basically to stay on track with my half training.  But here they are spelled out:

1.  I will be running 3-4 days a week for my half training.

2.  I’d like to add 2 days of Nike Training Club strength training to my routine.  But I’m having trouble committing to doing anything longer than 15 minutes.  So I’m going to focus on the mixing up the “Get Focused” workouts.

3.  100 pushup challenge.  My initial test was 20, from my toes.

4.  More water. I’m not sure I want to aim for a certain amount, but I need to get more water in me.

So that’s it.  Oh, wait.  I also have to make sure I kick Bari’s skinny ass whenever life gets crazy and she wants to take a raincheck.

    Great goals. Good luck on the half. I’m also loving the NTC app and workouts from it.
