Ever since seeing John Mayer running stairs, I have become a bit obsessed with running them myself. So yesterday, my husband and I took on the stairs at the park together.
We set the clock for 30 minutes. I went up and down first, then as soon as I got to the bottom, he went. When he got to the bottom, I went again and so on. This way we were a little competitive with each other, but not so much that we were tripping and falling down the stairs (which would happen if we were running against each other). We each got about a minute and a half of rest between turns so it worked perfectly. I was thrilled to get my husband doing something else other than just running and weights, and he liked pushing me to go one more time.
At the end, we gave each other a big high-five (no joke) and we were pleased with ourselves the rest of the night. It was a great workout and something that is much more fun to do with another person, especially if you are like me and can easily talk yourself out of going up and down one more time.
So grab your husband or a friend and take on the stairs together.
