A New Personal Record

Today I completed eight sets of the Santa Monica stairs...which is a personal best for me. Again, as long as I don't try and go faster than I can, I find that I can last much much longer. Today I did a few sets with my friend Bad Molly and she had to take off earlier than I was ready. Instead of taking a ride with her, I decided to hang back and see how much longer I could keep it up for.

To my own surprise, I was able to exceed my previous best record and I didn't even want to keel over and die by the time I was done. Eight sets! Are you kidding me?! I was pushing it when I tried to run the 1/2 mile home. My legs were all, "Knock if off you ahole, I think eight sets of the stairs is more than enough for one day!" I agreed with my inner monologue and walked the rest of the way home.

I've come a very long way from when I was scared by the stairs and wouldn't even dream of doing them. Now I can do a set without even thinking twice about it. And the fact that I've made my way up to eight sets at a time is amazeballs. I think my cap will be ten sets. I see no reason why I'd ever need to do more than that, ever.

Here's hoping I can walk tomorrow!

Last thought before signing off for the night and shutting down. If you're not watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on ABC- do yourself a favor and catch it online or see if there are re-runs that your DVR can hook you up with. Steve and I just caught the third episode and it was so uplifting and eye-opening. If you have children eating school food, you have to check this out. If you don't start sending your child to school with their own food that you prepare or give them, I'd be shocked! For real, check it out- it's an amazing show.
