I hate stairs

We spent the entire hour this morning going up and down the stairs on old main hill. I just in the interest of full disclosure I should admit that twice we went up the paths but the bulk of the time was going up and down the stairs. I think it totaled around 9 trips in all and Alissa timed us 3 times. My first time was 6 minutes 8 seconds. My second time was 5 minutes 40 seconds and my third time was 5 minutes 43 seconds. Just 3 measly seconds! Stairs are going to be the death of me and we were advised by Alissa that we should be spending at least 10 minutes a day on the stair master as we can expect another Stadium Challenge during this competition. Yeesh! However, as much as I dislike stairs I’m really glad that Alissa is preparing us for the challenge. I wouldn’t want to go back to the stadium cold again and I’m hoping I can beat my previous time of “over an hour”. Time will tell.

    well, that will be the good exercise though.. but if you hate that.. you can have swimming as your exercise.. that would be the best for you.. 😉

  2. Jonathan, we’re in the pool tomorrow! I’m not a great swimmer but it’ll be a nice change on my knees.

    My aching knees will barely let me walk, especially after 8 hours of work on hard tile floors. I like swimming, but where is the time. Where’s a bathing suit that isn’t made of 3 very tiny handkerchiefs? Why do they cost nearly $100?
