My office is on the second floor. I never take the elevator. I run up and down those stairs 10 or 15 times a day. But just the thought of doing it today made me want to throw up. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t.
I do realize to most of you healthy and fit people out there, the amount of running I’ve done seems minimal. Please remember there is a whole group of us that get winded chasing our children around, walking up stairs, or just simply watching other people exercise. I fall into that category. Today was tough but I did it. And I have to say that after our run tonight, I didn't feel awful. Every muscle still hurts, but I'm not discouraged. I think that is improvement.
I will NOT take the elevator.
