Superhero stuff

Friday, August 08, 2014

I feel stronger walking up the stairs at work finally. It took 2 months! Most days I go up and down the 18 steps only a few times- average 100 steps a day. And I was going so slow that as soon as I got the tiniest faster I pushed harder, so I was always out of breath. It was deceptively discouraging. But I made myself avoid the elevator.

Link to article excerpt below-

Guadians star said this:
Pratt also says training for his unprecedentedly physical role as Peter Quill has given him Gamora-levels of badassness:

"I can do 40-inch box jumps now. Action-hero physical stuff. Jumping that high feels really good. You see a giant hillside, and you think, I wanna get up that. You see a building, you think, I could climb that. When you get in shape, the world around you becomes things you wanna jump on and climb on."
Seriously, it doesn't take movie star fitness to feel fairly invincible. The confidence from KNOWINg things, even if no one else does. The mileage count-down on freeway signs making you think about how you ran that last weekend. The freedom of feeling empowered to not be stuck, even if your security crumbles, like your car breaks down.

It changes your whole life.

    I was just thinking something similar the other day - there's a certain loop I walk through town that measures about 2.5 miles, and when I first started walking it I wanted to cut it short, or turn around, or hurl myself into traffic. But it started getting easier and easier, and now I'm looking forward to adding different legs to the route to make it longer, or to add more hills or something to make it more challenging. It's great to feel pride in the progress you've made, and I really feel that no amount of progress is too small!
