Pedaling along a scenic highwa...
I have convinced myself now that high numbers within each set are not yet important.

I like starting with a set of 10 or 12, then going off to brush my teeth or whatever and coming back to do a 20 ish set and finishing with another 20ish set. I'll add sets before I push incredibly high rep counts.

I did 10, 20 and 18 this morning.

I was out until 1 am driving in the snow, surveying the landscpape. I did help push a truck out of the ditch a little before 1am, so I think that is why I'm sore today. I've also noticed a decrease in what I can do based on getting too little sleep (ie, going to bed at 1am).

I'm thinking that I will add a set or two in the evening soon so that I'm not rushing in the morning. Hopefully, that won't lead to burnout. We'll see.

You are spot on with the sleep. Also if you track what you eat, you will see some foods are high energy and others actually zap you.
I do my main set first thing in the morning and try to get all I can then, but I do them all day long, whenever I have a break or feel like it. I am in hopes that it will allow me to gradually increase my set length. And yes, some days are easy and other days its a big struggle. Thats where you guys help..if everyone else is doing it when they had a bad day, then so can I.

Yeah, and I still eat like carp....working on it, though!! No pool hall means no skipping dinner due to time constraints and just settling for some chips, a microwave pizza and a soda for dinner. smile

smile @ kitten

I realized that I ordered the same dark grey color that I did the first time, so the tee shirt looks almost identical to the one I already have. frown

BUT, Zazzle is letting me swap out for a different color. Their customer service is really nice! smile

Yeah Pup, don't be a bully because he's a big, ripped (old) guy! We can't be allowing that kind of discrimination to be going on in here, this is a supportive community!

If you're going to make fun of him for something, it should be for his southern roots or baldness! wink

Besides, it's not safe to mock someone who is that close in geographicial proximity to you. He could come take you out! I don't have much to worry about though, so I can get away with it smile

I've fallen off the pushup wagon. Started when I went out after work on Friday and continued all weekend. I feel badly about it, but I'm putting the 3 days behind me (a blip on the radar) and rededicating myself today to the pushups.
