I have been seeing this 30 day Squat Challenge floating around Facebook for a couple weeks, a decided to give it a whirl. I mean really, how hard could it be? Start at 50 at day 1, finish at 250 on day 30. OK, that last number was a little intimidating, but I saw that it was a slow progression. I printed up the paper and figured I could cross off each day as I went along. I also was talking about it with a friend, and roped her into doing this with me since she mentioned that she had started, then stopped when she was sick.  So now I have a workout buddy to harass me into doing this.

Day 5:  I owned this challenge today!  I woke up feeling great and while I did not look forward to doing 70 today, I did not dread it like I did on day 3.  My legs were relaxed and not sore.  I did break this up into 7 sets of 10 this morning, and was able to do full squats.  My legs are tender, but not sore.  Not haveing any problems at all navigating the couple of steps on the front pourch.  I'm feeling energized (though that could be from sleeping in a little) and ready for the day!
