stairs | weights

Yes. Today was a good day on the stairs.

I wasn't especially fast but the first runner felt surprisingly good as did the last one.

Jim K also had a super day and kept pushing me each time up and did not rest nearly as much as usual. Go, go, go!

And in the gym? Why thanks for asking… Martin did indeed have a banner workout there too.

So as not to break tradition I showed up at the Howe Street stairs at 5:40 and started walking. Warming up before running is IMPORTANT. I got up to speed pretty quick (although I did feel rather tired on that first flight) and squeezed in five flights before Jim showed up. Then we did 9.5 flights together.

The reason it was 9.5 is our last runner was 'up two down one' meaning we ran up two sections of stairs, ran down one, and then went back up for two more. Repeat until you get to the top. It's actually a really nice way to break up the monotony of this workout. And it let us finish with a walker. :)

I took lunch a little late but still managed to hit the IMA. For a date with iron. Yeah baby.
