Got through another week! I thought week 3 would get me but I squeaked by. Here's my progress so far:
|Date||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Maximum||Total|
One thing I did find myself doing is “powering through” the pushups more (meaning I did them faster). That and I continued to take a little extra time in between the levels (somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes rather than 1 to 2 minutes). I can see the number of pushups I'm doing going up steadily, so that's what really matters, I guess.
Sticking with the program is going to be most of what gets me to the hundred. Since I was so fat to begin with I set my expectations of getting to 100 in six weeks as being zero. I'll be happy if I can get there in anywhere close to six months.
But that's all right. It's helping me to get into better shape.

I was able to get through day 2 of week 3 today, but now I’m on to day 3 for the second time. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish it this time. Maybe I’ll try your “powering through” and extra rest time method 🙂
