I was doing 56 to 60 floors on the stair climber at the gym for a month (until the New Year's crowd came in and it was impossible to get on a machine). Now as part of the training this week, I did a 25 floor climb with a friend (well, actually my evil trainer that talked me into doing the stair climb). The first 25 floors kicked my butt. THEN WE DID IT AGAIN with only the elevator ride down and a short walk as a rest.
I did all 50 floors that day but I cannot say that I liked it. My breathing was hard on the first round and on the second round I felt my legs. This Monday I am going to do it again as practice. Then Sunday will be the real thing.
It is for a good cause and I am proud to say that I raised a bit of money for it. That part does feel good. I am just hoping that I finish. I guess at this point I don't even care if I am the last person on the stairs as long as I finish.
Please think good thoughts for me. I am going to try to keep in mind what I posted on my FaceBook page:
