The Challenge Made!

A little history first - will make the story easier to understand.

1) A year ago I had back surgery, removed L4 disk - Microdiskectomy, all went well - but I have not exercised the back muscles like I should have beyond any normal day to day activity. Lately my back has been bothering me just a little. No biggie - just a little sore off/on.

2) My girlfriend is active AF Reserves, Lt. Colonel, runs (runs - not jogs - runs) some 5 miles - 3 days a week, extremely well fit, teached yoga 3 times a day - 3 days a week for years - she is fit.

3) I on the other hand - only run if something bigger then me or 4 legs is chasing me. I do yoga a few days a week in the morning to help with my back and general toning. I've recently lost 30lbs and feel fantastic - generally good health.

So I was at lunch with my girlfriend yesterday - long story short - we were talking about my back hurting a little the last few days and she mentions that we need to strengthen my core. Then she throws a challenge out to me:

She challenges me to the first of the 2 of us to complete 100 pushups - tracked online and we have to be able to complete the challenge infront of our children (4 between the 2 of us#.

Her last PT test she had to do 25 in under 3 minutes. This morning I struggled to do 5 at all. I'm in trouble!

Plus - she wants a wager! If I am the first to reach 100 - #big "if" right?) what do I want? Likewise - if she reaches 100 first - what she wants.

I'm in trouble!

So for a clarification - she sent me this today:

one hundred push ups

OK, we’ll do the test tonight and we’ll do it away from the kids. This shouldn’t be about them being obnoxious, which it could easily be. At some point, though, I’d like to do it in front of the kids so we can model fitness for them.  Wednesdays will be our day 1. Each Wed, we’ll do our “day one” workout together and if we’re both able to complete it or unable, no prize. If one is able and the other is not: foot rub or? Ten minute massage of choice (that can be done in front of kids, so keep it clean).  Now, you have to come up with the final prize. The final prize is based on getting to 100 on schedule, which will probably be different for us.
