skygiants: Nellie Bly walking a tightrope among the stars (bravely trotted)
From: [personal profile] skygiants
I am an incredibly physically lazy person who is generally pretty allergic to strenuous exercise -- the sensation of 'LUNGS TOO SMALL, MUST WAIT FIVE MINUTES TO BREATHE PROPERLY AGAIN' is one I deeply detest -- so the idea of the sort of marathon that involves work holds negative appeal for me. However, I do sometimes wonder how I would do at the kind of marathon that involves not-doing rather than doing -- hunger strikes, staying awake for exceptionally long periods of time, that kind of thing. Endurance of just enduring. I've had a number of long red-eye flights over the past couple years and scheduled myself to Do Stuff without break on the other end, and I tell myself it's so I can more easily reset, but probably it is just as much to prove to myself that I can.

Possibly relatedly, when I was a kid I used to practice jumping off of increasingly high things (trees, the top of jungle gyms, etc.) which I like to think is part of the reason I have never broken a bone; I got very, very good at falling.
