Running stairs ? (Read 2933 times)

    Now imagine if you were 45+ pounds over weight and this is what you had to deal with every day. Imagine the extra and constant stress on the heart, muscles, and joints.  

     

    I have another workout where I carry a 120lb sandbag on my shoulder and I have actually thought about that very thing.   I couldn't imagine weighing that much more then I do.

      Now imagine if you were 45+ pounds over weight and this is what you had to deal with every day. Imagine the extra and constant stress on the heart, muscles, and joints.  

       I rode my bike to work last week when my car was being fixed.  I carried a backpack full of books, papers, etc, probably about 25lbs worth.  I was thinking that exact thing riding up hills :s

      "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

        running with a backpack full of weight is brutal.  That set of vertical stairs does look sick.  Think I'd take the escalator..... lol.

          Yet I get no extra credit for a 90 mile running week with 30 extra lb. No respect!

          Oh, what, I should just eat less and quit my bitchin'?  Wink

            I've got a sick  set of stairs about a 10 minute drive from where I am 

             

             

            1 mile, 5000 steps and 2100' of pure awesomeness.

            This is quite impressive--a set of stairs like these would keep me busy for a while!

                Same here. Looks like enough of a challenge just to walk.

                  Looks like The Incline in Manitou/Colorado Springs. My brother had taken me over there before. That's a tough hike up but totally worth it for the panoramic views you get.  And a fun run down. I think they made it out of an old cog railrod or something like that.

                    the worst thing you can do for someone drowning in shark infested waters is throw them a life preserver. don't you think?

                     

                     

                     

                     


                    running > all else

                      Personally, I think that running stairs is very helpful to my runs. Squats, lunges, same thing. Some may feel that weight lifting has put a damper on their running, but I definitely think it builds stamina.

                        The pic above of '5000' steps however, looks awful!  It also looks dangerous wow! But, more power to you if you enjoy it. haha

                          When i run down stairs, i make sure to ware short running shorts, gripping socks, and sometimes even shinpads and a bike helmet if i fall. I always make sure to be at jogging speed ad very smooth and steady.
