|Just take it like a champ...even the stairs...|
Stairs ended up being a theme for the week...they are always my nemesis after a long walk/run...even without the right knee twinges. As it turned out I had to take them more than usual in Week 18. I had to park further away then usual at work. There was even a firedrill included in the fun...11 flights down and 11 flights up. I took them faster than I had the last time we had a firedrill...even with my knee...and that felt pretty good. I did not get out of breath. It was a testament to the work I have been putting in since late February. I am not a sloth. Even with my knee as it is...I know that I can still do this. I have made up my mind. I have less than two to go and I will get this done. Fear is a colossal waste of energy...in the grand scheme of things...this is just blip in the journey...I have no broken bones...I can still walk...life is good. I remind myself constantly that I do not need a medal at the end...I just want to finish. And finish I shall...pushing all the fear behind me by just moving forward.
