On Continuing: A Rocky Story
If you're a Rocky fan, or a Stallone fan, you should go see it. It's the sixth flick in the likable character's journey through life, and probably the last. (Rocky is in his 50's in the movie and Stallone is 60.) It's well worth seeing.
The other day I posted about how I increased my hand strength by leaving a pair of gorilla hand grippers out and squeezing them -- or trying to -- every day.
Well, with the same principle in mind, I now have a rope climbing tower.
It's a metal tower with an extension at the top of it, with a heavy rope hanging from it to the ground. It looks a lot like a gallows pole.
It's outside by my gym; near the pool, spa and catarium.
It doesn't quite go into the clouds, but it's 15 feet high and pretty intimidating when you're at the base of it looking straight up.
I haven't tried climbing it yet as the metal tower was just set in concrete and has to dry first. But I'm pretty sure I won't get up the rope on the first try unless a rabid bear is chasing me.
And maybe not even then.
But if I try it every day, in time I will do it.
The new Rocky movie has a similar message.
It's not about stopping.
It's about continuing.
