Pushups… in the Courthouse

If you read my blog post yesterday, you know I had a pushup FAIL and didn’t get through the Day 2 workout. Today, during one of the many times the judge sent our jury out of the courtroom, I did Day 2 in the hallway outside the jury room.

Reps: 6 – 6 – 8 – 6 – 10

I think I probably could have squeezed out another 1-2 on the last round, but I was worried the District Attorney was going to come out into the hall and think I was a complete nut.

When I was finished with the pushups, there was still time to kill, so I did walking lunges up and down the hallway. The bailiff caught me doing that, but he didn’t seem to mind. “You an exerciser?” he asked, then went on to tell me that he does 75 pushups every day.


I think I’m going to make it an on-going life mission to do pushups in unusual places… and when possible, document it with a photo. I sincerely doubt I can get a pic of myself doing a pushup outside the jury room, so just pretend this is me:
