I started again doing the third week’s first day: 14,18,14,14,20 with a 60-second break in between each set.

Glad I could do it, because I strained my back on Monday in the first hour of Monday’s tennis match…I had to serve around 13 deuces. Later I forced myself to do the push ups, and that’s when I couldn’t complete that last set. Didn’t even try to do any push ups on Wednesday. But I was able to play tennis Tuesday, Thursday and today, Friday. The heat from the tennis movement loosens up the muscles and minimizes the soreness.

Like Rocky…I am getting stronger. I am inspired by a story I just read today and will post soon about a woman who was told she’d never recover from cancer and brain surgeries, so she began running marathons…if she can do that, then I should be able to do a few push ups…
