Reason #14: Because that stairway doesn’t lead to heaven

Filed under: curves, health, reason — Easy @ 9:00 am

I frigging hate stairs.

I get out of breath so very, very quickly on them. Just a few is enough to have me huffing and puffing away. It’s embarrassing when I’m with other people and exhausting even when I’m not.

The thermostat that theoretically controls the air conditioning is up 3 floors from me, which is a lot of stairs. But it doesn’t turn the AC on and off the way it’s supposed to, which means every time I want to turn it on, I trudge up the stairs (by which point, boy howdy do I need some air conditioning!) and when it gets cold (or loud) in here, and I need to turn it off again, back up the stairs I go.

If I were in better shape, those stairs wouldn’t be so exhausting, and I wouldn’t spend so much time adding and removing layers to try and maintain my body temperature without having to climb them.

  1. Amusingly, I wrote this Reason a couple of weeks ago, before I wrote my Wednesday entry. Remarkable timing, I have.

  2. Stairs hate me.

    There’s four flights of very steep ones up to my office in the morning and the only way I’ve found to consistently make myself climb them instead of taking the elevator is to run through a wushu form in my head, 1 section per flight, to keep my mind of the burning in my legs.
