How Many Pushups Is Too Many?

When I was a soldier, I could do 72 pushups in two minutes.  That was over 33 years ago.   Today?  Not half that number.   Most people would have trouble knocking out 10, but I am confident that most anyone who can do 5 pushups, can do 100.  That’s my goal:  100 pushups in three minutes.

It may take a while to get there, but I know what it’s like to have a goal and slowly work toward it.    If you had asked me eight years ago if I would consider racing in an Ironman, I would have dismissed the idea.  But here I am, three Ironman races later.  How did I get here? By believing I could.

I don’t know how long it will take to build up to 100 pushups.  It shouldn’t take too long, because I believe I can do it.

(This gives me a great idea for a video series!)
