>Cross Training>Running stairs?
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Bring it on.
You could keep up the stair work and then you'd be ready for the Bop to the Top in Indy next year. You race up the stairs to the 37th floor of the One America Tower.
When I was in college and on the crew team (I'm 5'2 and slight, not a good match but I digress) we used to run the stairs at Harvard Stadium to build up our quads. It was very painful. We had to run up and walk down. By the middle your quads are shaking so hard it's hard to walk, by the end it is impossible -- the running is actually easier than the walking.
Needless to say, I haven't done that in years.
I was actually just talking about going to run stadiums the other day. I miss that about college too, you know, that quivering feeling while stretching out after. Want to join me?
I don't think so! 4 flights practice for 37 floors? I am nuts...........not insane!
Oh yeah, I'm sure that's good for a bum hip.
just gets a little annoying have to go down over and over again.
That is why God invented the man who invented elevators!!
I have read that is what to do. Run up elevator down
The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
