After a weekish off I returned to the stairmaster a little out of breath. Legs were fine but my cardio has slacked without being in Beth's classes the last 2 weeks. I did 90 floors in 20 minutes today.

Total floors...1235

Stairs and beers

Yesterday I did 98 floors in 20 minutes then got ready for the Bears Rams game. To get to the metrolink we had to walk up 2 more flights of stairs giving me an even 100 for the day. I'll take it.

Total floors = 1145

1000 floors!

Half and hour of steps yesterday. I controlled the speed instead of using a program which made me a little slower. I did 145 floors. I'll put in a good lift tonight so I doubt I get on the stairmaster. Maybe just a few minutes or so.

total floors = 1009

yesterday on, today off

I took today off because as I was walking up the steps in a parking garage everything felt heavy. I'm not sure how often it is healthy to push ones self in step training while I'm still building a base. Yesterday though I did 75 floors in 15 minutes.

Total floors is now at 817.

1,000,000 steps?

I thought it would be possible to reach and a great goal to aim for...I did the math, and no, it's not possible by March. Today I did a legs weight workout and then 7 minutes for 42 floors.

Total floors--742

25 minutes

After lifting I did 25 minutes of aerobic cycle on the stepmaster for 106 floors. It was hard, but I'll do another 100 or so tomorrow I think. I haven't been lifting in the legs much, just doing aerobic workouts in Beth's classes. We did couples yoga last night too. It was surprisingly fun and easy.

Total floors--an even 700

Another day

Yesterday I did 20 minutes and 105 floors using the fat burner program. It has higher highs but lower lows than the aerobic one. I can't figure out if it's harder, I think it is. I started at a higher level early on, 8, but peaked around 12 for most of it until the end.

Total floors: 594

Last night

Last night I did Beth's 1 hour circuit training class. I don't know how many steps that's equal to but it hurts like hell. I'm off to the gym soon to do more steps tonight and up my total number of floors.

Today's training

I messed up on some earlier totals and added 40 more floors than I should have. Today I did 30 minutes again on the aerobic training cycle of the stepmaster for 141 floors.

Corrected grand total is now at 489 floors.

The top outside parts of my hips hurt but my calves are fine. I'm traveling to Ohio and back the next two days so I don't know what my training will be on those 2 days.

Days 5 and 6

Day 5 was a brief was tough workout. I did 10 minutes and reached 62 floors before hitting the bars.

Day 6 was a longer workout of 30 minutes, 147 floors. That was the longest I'd done on the stepmaster.

Total floors is now 388.
