The Hundred Pushup

Another lunchtime spin on the elliptical for 45 minutes (5.4 miles covered, keeping my HR around 152 BPM).

Since there is no way to do CrossFit WODs with my foot the way it is right now (lifting weights is a no-no since it puts pressure on my feet like mad and aggravates the stress fracture area), I found something else to help me out. At hundredpushup.com, they have a 6 week plan to build yourself up to 100 pushups. Not bad. Simple, yet effective. I did day 1 yesterday evening and cranked out 41 pushups total (10, 10, 8, 6, 7). By the time my foot is ready for running, my core and upper-body should be stronger to handle the pounding and shock that running usually brings on.
