Today, I was looking ahead to rise, but I was descending.

Were you dreaming?

Were you descending in the physical sense (like with an elevator) ?

Rising as in awakening from sleep?

Where you on an air-plane at the time?

Descending: descending in altitude above or below the Earth's surface?

Looking ahead: Visually? Mentally?

Were you in the midst of a journey or process?

Is the exact location relevant? The exact time?

Is this story unique to you, or could it happen to someone else?

Were you with others at the time? Relevant?

Are you outside and able to see a geographic or structural formation that is going up while you are in fact ambulating down, ie a valley?

Were you in a structure that descends on its own, ie an elevator or escalator? Or were you the actual actor of your own descent? Did you have an appt or other set event that was occuring later in the day that you needed to take the same kind of device to go back up?

"looking ahead to rise"--meaning that:
you intended to rise?
you got the sensation/impression you were rising?
you behaved as you would if/when you were rising?

Okay, here's the RECAP:

The other day, I was walking down the stairs to my apartment, but in some way behaved as if I was walking upstairs. Being at the gym plays a role here.

because...you wanted to? because someone dared you to? because you'd needed to walk backwards for something you did at the gym? (I remember reading something about a guy who ran the miles on his car backwards by driving it backwards, so he could sell it with less mileage O.o but it was something when I was a kid, not recent, so anyway...) was something counting how far you went and you wanted to see if you could run it backwards by going backwards???

***** SPOILER *****

The other day, I overexterted myself in the gym, resulting in rather bad muscle soreness in the front of both my thighs the following day. Since I was barely able to walk down any stairs the normal way because of that, I walked down the stairs backwards.



Kudos to Shez for solving, cheezburgur for Kaylee kitteh, and thanks to everyone else for puzzling :-)
