28

pushups.
I can do 28 push ups.
who knew.
lol.
I didn't.
I didn't do the situps yet...but I have been doing a 100 situps for forever...before it was 200 every other day. I don't think the situps are going to be a problem...hold one..lets just see how many I can do...okay...did 70 in 2 minutes with me stopping every few seconds to check the clock and nothing holding my feet...
so right now I am passing the situps and pushups...situps was a 94 out of a 100, push ups was an 82 out of 100...and my run was 24 minutes which is 51 percent. I'll be doing another run on thursday and will actually attempt to pick up the pace....minimum passing is 60 percent. So, not too bad. I just need to drop 2 minutes off my time to pass....7 minutes to ace it....to get 100 on the pushups I need to be able to do 40 and for situps 77....and considering normally your feet will be held, I think I could do that now.
I don't have much to say tonight. I have a ton of housework to do...so will get off...I am going to work on a training and food schedule tomorrow.
So I will update that tomorrow.
Have a good night guys.
Hugs,
Chris

I think I could do a push up. One. Maybe. You're my hero.

Pushups are like everything else: the more you practice, the better you get. Either that or take Muay Thai Boxing. We had to do 50 at one point tonight while our partner punched the bag. Then switch. Talk about killing your arms!

I do about 10 pushups so 28 sounds amazing.

Mary Ellen said...

You're not thinking of joining back up now so you can be in combat, are you? ;) Yes, I do know better! Are you going to train like you want to be a Navy SEAL next? :)

Do you have a link to show the passing scores/requirements? I would like to see where I stand and as I make progress!

Keep going strong girl -- you're doing wonderful things for yourself and your family.

I am your newest fan (and we just happen to be the same weight and height)!

I cannot do 28 push-ups at this time, however. Kudos to you (and for running barefoot - ow!)

I gave you a "Stylish Blogger" award on my blog a couple of days ago! :)

Hey Christine, nothing about your post (lol) but about your comments around and about the net - especially to Loretta - I really wish that I had a quit wit like you do.

Christine said...

@ helen, ouch. 50 pushups...well, maybe I'll get there soon. lol

@ mary ellen...NOT on your life. The seals don't have any standards but the army ones...but they have to keep to level of the youngest age group as long as they are in...just like special forces. The only difference is spec ops training takes it above and beyond.
It's the school that is difficult, and I don't think there is any way to replicate that.

That will take you to a page...just click on your age range...

@ Darla, Thank you...but in real life I rarely say the things I am actually thinking. lol. only here.
