Girl lemme see ya drip sweat

The StairMaster™ is so difficult. Seriously. I tapped out after five minutes. I believe if I can work my way up to 30 minutes on the StairMaster™ by the end of the semester, I will know that I can survive Teach for America, because the stair climbing is just that fucking hard.*

So basically, my point is that I have gotten back into exercising more consistently which is good. But my legs have been sore pretty much consistently for the past week and a half, which is not as good, because my house has a lot of very steep stairs. IT ALL COMES BACK TO THOSE PINCHE STAIRS.

*This is totally a valid and appropriate comparison, that between mastering the art of teaching underprivileged children in two years and continually climbing up an infinite stair machine. I should win a Simile Award® for that.

  1. ILOVESTAIRMASTERS. I get into such a flow with them, I used to go on for an hour to an hour and a half. That was a time when I was actually in shape, though, I don't think I could do five minutes now. I stopped exercising and never really restarted (minus yoga on the weekends). It's awesome that you're back to exercising regularly, I wish you luck in conquering the exercise machines :)

    I'm confident that your time at Teach for America will be awesome, too.
