The thing is that over my life, I’ve had to rebuild my body three times.
There was a time my bike got hit by a speeding car, a car wreck, and a dropped motorcycle.
I’ve found that I can do it, but really nobody should have to rebuild themselves. Once is quite enough.
Working out can be a blast, like these insane inline skate workouts that I used to do and have to slow myself down from doing again. 13.5 miles instead of 33 and that sort of thing where a workout becomes an Exercise in Logistics instead of maintaining a steady 173 BPM heart rate over an hour and a half.
If you are looking down at your belt and it … disappears, it’s time to look at ways to burn an extra calorie or five in many ways. When I blew my knee out during a race, I found myself getting off the train an extra stop, then two to walk the extra distance.
I’d get to work and for a while, I would climb the stair tower up and down to the office. Since the office was up on the Ninth Floor, it was a respectable way to burn a few.
These folks here, well they’re working on the 60th floor. I’d suspect if they’re climbing a 60 floor stair tower, they are nowhere near Fort Lauderdale, and have other problems to look after.
Three friends work in a skyscraper
All three friends work at the 60th floor.
One day the elevator doesn’t work so they have to take the stairs.
The three friends make a decision that one of them will sing for 20 floors, the next will make jokes for the next 20 floors and the last friend will tell tall tales for the last 20 floors.
Once the friends reach the 40th floor the friends had a great time. The songs and jokes were appreciated.
Now it’s the turn of the last friend, and the tall tales are also very much appreciated.
When they reach the door of their office at the 60th floor the friend of the tall tales and says:
“I have another tall tale for you guys, I forgot the keys to the office…”
