Project: Get Fit – November

*This post originally appeared on the Virgin Active Blog!

Wow, I haven’t blogged here in a while. This doesn’t mean I haven’t been training though. I have.

But that’s not what I want to talk about today. I want to talk about stairs. In particular the stairs at my office and the fact that I have walked up (and down) those stairs almost every single work day this year. I’m on the 2nd floor.

The few times I took the lift were when I had my 2 year old with me or I was sick. About 5 days this year.

I did a little calculation as follows:

  • number of steps = 56
  • number of days I was at work (up to end of October) = 191
  • 10696 steps up and 10696 steps down

That’s 21392 steps, minimum, because I often go up and down a few times a day.

In the beginning of the year I was huffing and puffing by the time I reached the top, now I practically run up the stairs and am barely out of breath at the top.

Just imagine if I had taken the lift. How many steps I would have missed out on.

I’m pretty proud of me!

    1. Dont feel too bad, at the moment the only exercise I am getting is the stairs. I have only done one training session this month. Just been too busy but going back today!
