Let me take you back in time, to my second grade year.
My least favorite subject was gym, and for good reason. I wasn’t athletically inclined (I broke my arm 4 times- all in elementary school). I was pretty anxious when testing came up during gym. I remember vividly the teacher saying we had to attempt pull ups. Waiting my turn in line I felt like I had to pee, my hands were getting sweaty, and my heart was pounding fast. My turn was getting closer, when the MOST embarrassing thing happened. I actually peed my pants.
Despite telling my peers that my mother forced me to wear jeans that weren’t yet dry that morning (which seemed convincing at the time), I was humiliated.
I know that mastering a pull-up isn’t anything like completing an Iron Man, or giving birth naturally. But, to me it’s a huge deal. I vowed to master the pull up at least 3 times throughout my life so far, and quit each time (often within minutes).
So the challenge is to complete 1 solid pull up, in 2 months. I actually started working out on Monday, so today is day 3. On October 14th, I will have a pull-up test (hopefully without the incontinence), with the goal of completing one.
