Made up the stairs to see Hood!

I made it up the stairs! Apparently all I need is the right motivation to climb a ton of stairs. Maybe my new physio plan should be "go to inaccessible plays all the time." My legs would get stronger as my bank account would get much weaker.

We arrived super early so I could take my time and not feel pressured to go at a regular speed. It was a good plan as I kept pausing for breaks. We reached the first landing thinking it was the top due to the amount of stairs we had just climbed but found out we had to go up once again. Thankfully, I was able to sit for a bit to rest and catch my breath before going for the second trek.

We had tickets in the front of the balcony thinking that the entrance would be at the bottom, if not the middle. Nope, it was at the top. So down more steps we went, very steep, steep steps. I found as hard as going up as I still find my balance is not at 100%. It's improving but I still find going down a gradient or climbing over a snowbank (getting out of the car, not just for kicks), a bit tricky. Yes, my legs/body is very tired today.

The play itself was tons of fun, great blue-grass music, beautiful set, amazing aerobics. It was a bit more violent than I would have expected but seeing as my experience of Robin Hood comes from Disney and Men in Tights, this version was probably more true to the origin story.
