Today I did my favorite workout, running stairs :D. I do this at the college down the street from my house, there is a staircase that is rarely used (secret I learned while I was on the crew team there). I try to do it between Fri.-Sun. when there is less undergrad traffic. I have been running stairs routinely for 3 yrs now and it is absolutely the best for your backside . . .
I am actually very self-conscious about most of my body, but I do appreciate my booty :)
Back to the workout, the staircase has 4.5 flights and 90ish steps. I alternate between taking every stair and every other. So I usually do my first set taking every step all the way up, then when I go up the next time I take two steps at a time. I did it for 20 mins. today which is how long I usually go for. I go all out most of the time so by the end of 20 min I'm dead.
My playlist (which is an absolute must for me when i'm doing this, if my ipod is dead I won't even think about doing stairs till it's charged) for today was Fallout Boy ~ Folie a Deux Album. Awesome, awesome workout music!
I always feel so great for the rest of the day after this workout, I try to do it at least once a week. Between working up a good sweat and blasting my favorite music it is like free therapy!!
