Pushup Challenge & the Trainer

So last night as usual for a Wednesday I met with Nina (my trainer). While working out I happened to mention the Pushup Challenge. So I am thinking she will have me do some pushups. No biggie cause I need to find out how many I start with. She has me do 2 sets of 15 pushups on the stability ball. OUCH!!! My second set was the fastest set of pushups she said she had ever seen. I just wanted them over with cause being on that ball was killer. We finished the hour once again working out just about every body part I have. Good workout but afterwards I was beat. I was planning to do some mileage after the workout but it was getting late and I was more tired than usual. I got in 1/2 mile on the treadmill afterwards and before the workout I had done 5 min on the rowing machine and about 15 min on the elliptical.
Believe it or not I am really looking forward to being able to do 100 pushups! Maybe by the time the I am through with the challenge I will be able to do some 1 arm pushups...lol

I saw your comment on Jodie's blog and was intrigued by your name (swimfan13). I, too, like training for triathlons, 5Ks, etc. I just did the Danskin a month or so ago but won't be doing anything else anytime soon (pregnant). I think I'll enjoy your blog!
