Day 9/30: Step-mill Challenge

Bring it on, Josh!

The other day my blogger friend Josh proposed a step-mill challenge for himself... "Climb the equivalent of the tallest staircase in the world (2,579 steps) in one session. This equates to 171 flights of stairs on the StepMill"...

That's a lot of steps!!

Well Josh did it over this weekend and killed it! He did 2700+ stairs which is equivalent to walking over 3 miles of straight STAIRS!! Awesome job, my friend! So awesome, in fact, I told him I'm gonna do it too... and I did tonight at the gym. Results:

Minutes: 50 min
Steps: ?? (not sure how many stairs = a floor)
Floors: 302
Miles: 4.2

Thanks for the motivation to get me moving on a machine I don't like! Variety is the spice of life and this was something different for my body. Yay!

That's pretty incredible! Judith and I have been determined to do stairs once a week, but only done em twice. Starting again in Term 4, next week. I did 107 stairs eight times, and it KILLED ME! Just guessing about 15 stairs per floor that's 56 floors - you did 302 floors Annie!?!!! REALLY! WOW! I'm impressed. Maybe that's way off, but you must know what an accomplishment you did. Great job! Keep it up :)
