Climbing the dreaded "hill"

Updated on February 23, 2012
After you sir
After you sir
My butt hurts
My butt hurts
Walking down the hill
Walking down the hill
Walking up the hill
Walking up the hill

I took a walk today

With my neighbor who's also my friend.

We walked in our apartment complex

Round and round the bend.

We first walked up a hill

Which was very hard to pass

My legs and feet were hurting

So was my "ass".

We finally reached the top of the hill

Panting as we got there.

We wanted to slow down but

Our thoughts didn't together share.

So we plodded along the flat surface of the ground

And came to a down hill slope

I sighed a big sigh of relief

That seemed to raise our hopes.

However when we reached the bottom of the hill

And were walking on the flat surface again

We realized that we had to walk up

To the place where we had begun.

Sighing and panting in distress

We doggedly climbed

Until we both reached our respective apartments

And just about with exhaustion, died.

      Hi alian346: Thank you so much for reading and enjoying. I am trying to exercise a little more, and our apartment complex has some hills. So when my neighbor and I decided to go for the first week, we were panting and having a hard time when it came to being able to walk up the hill. It is better now.

      Thanks for letting me know about the science test. I saw that you have a math test there too. I will do both of them :). Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

      Do what I do and take a taxi up hills and walk down them!!

      BTW - there's a new science test waiting for you!!

      Have a good day.............

      Hi raciniwa: Well, I think as you continue to exercise/walk, your body gets used to it. Today I have planned for 2 rounds instead of just 1. Let's see :). Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully you get to have a stroll outside sometimes :).

      Hi Sparklea: Taking the stairs is the best policy if you have the time. Sometimes you just don't feel like it and that is okay too. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my poem!

      Hi WannaB Writer: I am so out of shape as I haven't exercised in a while. So I'm trying to start walking around my apartment complex as a form of exercise. I thought that walking up the hills would help. However, it HURTS!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

      I could really identify with this. I love walking, but not uphill. I, too, loved the kitty picture.

      I could SO relate to your poem as I walk every single morning...not so much uphills. However, I hate elevators, and no matter what floor I need to be on, in any building, I take the stairs. It gets very grueling at times! I try counting them as I go to keep myself distracted. LOVE your pictures! Especially the kitty, as I am an avid cat lover. THANK you for a very realistic poem. I FELT it all! Blessings, Sparklea :)

      Hi Cloverleaf: Yes, it felt like I was hiking a mountain rather than a hill. I think I to exercise more :). Next week, it will be 2 rounds instead of just 1 :)). Yes, that kitten looks like what I felt like after the walk :)).
