Did I misuse the phrase “push back”?

A Slice reader left me a phone message in which she asserted that when I used “push back” in today's column, I erred.

Because I was talking about moving something to a later date, she said I should have chosen “push ahead.”

Feel free to weigh in before I call her back.
