Boom! Another good day on the stairs, I'm loving it. Of course by 'good day on the stairs' I mean I was sucking some ragged wind at the top of the last runner but it was tolerable and I never slowed to a walk. Everything is relative. :)
Last week I had such a good day on the stairs presumably because I showed up early and got in a few brisk walkers prior to running so I thought why not do the same thing today. I did not get there quite so early this time but still managed to squeeze in four walkers before Jim K showed up. Nice.
The fourth runner was pretty tough but I managed. This time of year I always wonder how in the hell I will ever achieve my goal of 15 flights with twice as many runners but we always do it so hopefully this winter will be no different.
Having a GPS with me on the stairs is cool. I have never had any stats other than time and it's fun to see how much vertical you gain during the course of a workout.
At the gym/weight room I had my first workout where I could do three sets of each exercise, that's progress in my book. We'll see how long I can keep this up and if it helps?
