100 Push Challenge: Day 3

Ok, so here is the weird thing about the 100 Push Up App. It counts the days that you work out as a day, but it recommends you take a rest in between days. So even though I started on Feb 16, I am only on Day 3. I would prefer if the app actually counted your days off. For example Day 1 would tell you to do your 5 sets of push ups and Day 2 would tell you to rest. Day 3 would tell you to do your 5 sets, Day 4 would tell you to rest. Anyway, that is my user experience feedback ;-) now onto my studification (note to self, register studdad.com).

After taking an extra day of rest while I conquered a cold I pumped out 57 push ups to complete my wekk1. The sets have gotten harder now demanding that I do 11, 15, 9, 9 and 13 push ups. I also noticed a little + sign at the end of the last set. I assume that is encouragement to do a few more if you can. I'm always up for a challenge so I threw in a few more to balance out the few extra beverages I had last weekend.

So far I notice that I am able to do a few more push ups, but I don't see much difference in the way I look. Perhaps the transformation from flab to fab requires a good night sleep? Anyway, I'm having fun with it and the gamification element is keeping me engaged and focused on breaking through to the lext level.

Next up is 63 push ups to start Week 2. Wish me luck.
