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!
