    Up and down

    Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

    I climbed 175 stairs at work today; I also descended 150. Yesterday I took on 75 each way. The days prior I averaged 100 in either direction.

    Each step isn’t tall, but I still cope with fatigue and achy glutes right after climbing so many in a row.

    Feel the burrrrn!” my inner voice commands. “Swing those arms! Lift those legs! Go faster!”

    I walk past at least three sets of elevators every day and opt for this harassment — I mean, exercise. I’ve been committed to the routine since I started my new job three weeks ago. Yet I have no less meat on my bones to show for the exertion.
