So...after multiple previous attempts of running stairs, I've finally found a way to do it without injuring myself. And it was right in front of me all the time: Walking up and down the stairs in our apartment building!
We live in a 10 story building and for the past couple of weeks I've been doing some early morning stair repeats. Walking mind you...running up stairs caused my previous injuries. I'm up to 4 sets now and have been humbled by the experience. Climbing stairs is hard! The first time I went out I was completely out of breath after the first set and my legs were rubber. That was hard to take especially since I'm a long time runner.
I've been combining these stair climbing sessions with my ab workout and while I can barely see a two-pack developing (if I squint in low light), I'm going to stick with it. I have a wager on with Larry Savitch for Reggae Marathon this December and if this is the only time in my life I actually sport defined abs it will be worth it!
Until next time...
