Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Before Running?

Could work this back into schedule, adding in push ups before going out for runs.

Exercise Routine

Consider adding another workout during the week consisting of just push ups.


When including push ups in arm workouts, add about twelve per set for the time being.


Remember to include push ups in usual arm workout (can add to sets).


End my normal weight training arm workouts with push ups.

Exhaustion Test

Results: 29 consecutive push ups.

Looks like I’ll be reiterating week 4, but this time advancing to column 3. x]

Week 4, Day 3

Intended sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 20 (min.).

Completed sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 21 (max).

I did this day again. Last week I did the exhaustion test and wasn’t satisfied. I also didn’t do enough push ups to be able to move onto the following week. I’m not sure if I had bad form, but I will do the exhaustion test again next time and pay more attention to form. The results will then be the crux for the decision of which group/week/day etc. to move to next.

Week 4, Day 3

Intended sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 20 (min.).

Completed sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 22 (max).

Total: 82.

Week 4, Day 2 (Repeated)

I really need to stop missing days with this. I again missed a whole week. I will try do this more consistently from now on. I decided to do week 4, day 2 again. Viz.:

Intended sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 18 (min.).

Completed sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 24 (max).

Total: 78.

I was also inspired by CJ’s results for the “exhaustion test”. When I get up to a total of 100 push ups from an amalgamation of all the sets I’m doing in one day, I will do the same exhaustion test.

Some quixotic-and-currently-irrelevent thoughts are that I would like to continue working on muscle endurance like this at least for this whole year. Would be nice to get up to as many as 200 push ups, but that is rather out of sight ATM :P. Better not get too far ahead of myself, eh?!

Week 4, Day 2

Intended sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 18.

Completed sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 20 (max).

Total: 74.
