Ruckin Stairs

Mon., Mar. 13, 2023 / 06:00 am - 06:45 am / Medina High School



5 PAX took their Silver Sneakers club to the stairs on a snowy March Monday. @Dash @Focker @Brutus @Radio and @Shugah all strapped on their ruck sacks/weight and avoided falling as we made our way up and down each flight of stairs before looping around and repeating 4x.


We finished with a quick round of Mary (LBCs > Big Boys > Gas Pumps… 25 of each, in order, without rest.)


In the book, The Willpower Instinct, the author talks about choosing to defy the instinct to self criticize… rather than react like your own drill sergeant, saying awful things to yourself and yelling “man up!”, focus instead of acknowledgement followed by compassion. The trick that stuck with me was to “treat yourself as you would a friend or loved one”… no way in hell I’d treat ANYONE like I treat myself… and I’m sure I’m not alone in that. Be kind to yourself and it yields results vs. depression/failure (the typical results of self-destructive criticism)
