The stairs are a harsh mistress

As part of getting in shape, I figured I’d start doing stairs again.

A year or two ago, I would routinely do 10 sets – where going from the sixth floor down to the first and back is 1 set.

Today I decided I’d start of light and only do 5 sets.

I forgot how much of a workout stairs are. After those 5 sets, my legs were burning, my heart was thudding, and I was breathing heavy and sweating.

I’m going to make it a regular thing, though. I just have to remember to wear a t-shirt and do it at the end of the day, because of all the sweat.
