November was respectably active. I did something physically demanding 19 days, down from last month’s 22 days and below my record 25 days in November 2009. I am not counting seven days, when I just did some push ups or a plank. Maybe I should count those days.
I played tennis just seven days, for only 23 1/2 hours, way below my record of 18 days set in June, and my all-time record of 42 3/4 hours. But I did play squash six times for 7 3/4 hours, and went hunting and walking in the woods four times for 6 1/2 hours. So I was moving around: it adds up to 37 3/4 hours.
I also did crunches three times, down from four last month and still a long way from my record of nine sessions in May and in December last year. However I again broke my all-time record for numbers…my best session of 1600 (500+500+600) set a new record over my previous record of 1505 (400+455+650) set last month. Having reached this high level, I pretty much stopped for about five weeks now, taking on the challenge of reaching 100 push ups.
I did some push-ups…10 different days, up from four times last month and setting a record over the eight days in September. My maximum without stopping was 46, no better than my number in September. But I am working on it. I only did a plank once for 210 seconds. Very boring and very strenuous. My record set last month was 270 seconds.
I made it to the Boston gym once and did some lat pull downs.
I am discovering that achieving 10 push ups in six weeks seems impossible for me. But I am sticking with it and will report back later.
