February Initiative: The Stairs

I work on the 5th floor of  a 5-story building, but I've only taken the stairs once or twice. And that was because the elevator was out of service. Well today I started something I've been thinking about for a while -- I took the stairs this morning and this evening. That's 84 up and 84 down. Right now my goal is to do this stairs in the morning and the evening when I go home. I might add in the steps at my lunch break in a few weeks, but the important thing is that I'm making this change with the hopes of co-workers doing the same. I think of it as a bonus short quick crossing training to kick off the day. Meanwhile, tonight at the gym the treadmill and I had words. And I lost the battle after 2.6 miles. It just wasn't happening. It was one of those nights in which the treadmill was truly the dreadmill. I then got on the Arc for about 10 minutes and then did another 10 minutes on the bike. My hope going into the gym was to run 4 or 5 miles, but I think I thought about it too much. Tomorrow, though, is a different day.
