Two Things on Tuesday

  1. Completed my stair at work today. I had to really talk myself when it came to round two. Round one was rough and my lungs were burning. Round two was a bit easier. Each round consisted of walking up 5 floors and back down 3x - for a total of 342 stairs going up and 342 stairs coming down.

    For reference, there are 1,860 steps from street level to 102nd floor of the Empire State Building, so I would need to complete this task 5.4 times to reach the top of the Empire State Building by stairs. My goal is each week is to walk the stairs 2 times a week and 2 times, up and down 3 times - for a total of up warding climbing of 684. In one week my total number of stairs will not reach the 102nd floor on the Empire State Building.  I might look a bit to excited for walking up stairs or maybe I am just wild eyed!
  2. Today is the second day in a row that the sun has been out! For those outside of the Seattle area - this comic pretty much represents our weather pattern - Seattle Weather.  I should really go run outside tonight after work, but I don't see that happening until it gets dark. I think I will hit up the gym instead its been a while since I have been there.  I need to get one of two workouts done tonight - run 6 miles or try out my new leg work out, not sure what I am going to do yet.
I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday- did you get a chance to cross any items of your to-do list today?


  1. Great job for you on those stairs! Today I had to leave work early to take a kid to the doctor. I was so impressed that my buddy and I got in both our stair runs before noon! This meant they were only about 90 min apart, so my legs were CRANKY.

    Oh man, I am laughing so hard at that comic. It is so true. It is so funny, and so painful. Today was a beautiful afternoon, I was glad to be out of the office.

  2. Good job on the stairs, I think that it also might help you in your running, your legs will get stronger and stronger.

  3. Doing stairs that much is going to be AWESOME for your legs!

    There's a race here in Los Angeles that's getting to the top of a building via stairs. I'm thinking of signing up for it.

    Have you ever made moussaka? I'm allergic to dairy, so my husband makes it for me. SO GOOD.
