Boot Camp Day Four. Stairs.

Today we took it up a notch.

I didn’t realize it when I signed up for this gig, but every other week boot camp changes location to the outside of a building with stairs.

35 of them.

That we climbed. Many times.

Frontwards, backwards,  on all fours, running, jumping, hopping….

It was crazy and by the time we got to the backwards crab I thought I was going to have a breakdown.

After all the climbing plus the jumping jacks, basketball jumps, chair sits, etc. … I know I’m going to be sore tomorrow. And even though I told Patti repeatedly, “this sucks” and I called the trainer a bad name under my breath (which I now regret, he’s really a very nice fellow), I’m glad I went.

Because I’m moving upwards.

Literally and figuratively.

And someday I’ll be able to climb up up all 35 stairs backwards on all fours. (Hey you have your goals, I have mine, don’t judge!)

And that makes me feel good.

Have you done something good for yourself today?
