I’m not going to lie, I’m currently hating it. Right now my upper arms burn so bad.
But you know what? For once? It’s a hurt that I earned; in the same way that like challenging myself with kayaking and rock wall climbing. I live almost every day in pain. Granted, it’s a different kind of pain, but it’s constant and for no good reason. This? There is a reason to it. Just like I made it to the top of a wall and down a river, I will make it to 20 pushups. Maybe even 50. Or probably just 20. But I’ll be stronger for it, better for it, healthier for it, and proud of myself. Even if I am in so much pain for it.
