Stairway to heaven?
So my friend and personal trainer Holly, convinced me to run stairs with her and some friends on Saturday at the high school since I had already done my long run for the week. I has been YEARS since I have run stairs, so I knew it was going to be bad. I used to be really good at running stairs. Of course that was when I was doing it 3 times a week. We did one minutes intervals with a one minute recovery. I only had time to do 18 sets. It kicked my rear end! There were times I thought I was going to puke. It was way harder than any speed work out! I think I need to do this more often. But for now, I need to nurse my aching calves and rear end until they aren't screaming at me. Hopefully running Monday will loosen them up!
