Today was the best day on the stairs so far this fall.

When I started I still felt my right IT band/knee (only going down though) but after about four flights it started to get better and after about six it felt almost normal. Almost.

About six flights in suddenly this group of about 8-10 women show up with headlamps and long sleeve shirts tied around their waists. It was like a swarm of fireflies with all the lights going up and down and up and down.

I noticed today that it is taking me almost exactly four minutes per flight (down and up once). I'm still going down very cautiously but am able to keep the pace high (walking two at a time) on the way up. And I was thrilled to note that I felt almost the same at the end of the workout as I did in the middle.

having a water bottle handy for this workout is great. I need to remember to keep bringing it.
