Strength training

Due to a lingering cough, a busy work schedule and general laziness and apathy, I had a 15 day break between strength workouts.  I figured I would be weaker this morning, but I didn't realize by how much.  It's amazing how easily you can lose strength.

I really want to bang out my pushup challenge, but I've been stuck in week 4 for four weeks now so I tried doing pushups off the bench which should make them easier.  I didn't really find them easier so I'm wondering if the weak link is in my wrists and elbows rather than with my muscles.  I'm not sure, but there isn't much reason for me to repeat week 4 week after week if I'm not seeing an improvement.

I refuse to believe that I'll max out at 25 consecutive pushups.
