Taking the Stairs

Just when I think I'm in tip-top shape, I have to climb four flights of stairs. At the top, I'm huffing and puffing and my legs tingle from the unexpected rush of blood.

Marathon, schmarathon. I'm glad I'm not training for a twelve floor ascension: That would truly test my endurance.

I feel your pain! I did the hustle up the hancock (only the half) which was 56 flights and I nearly died before hitting stairwell 4.

Definitely as demanding as the 'thon.

Your body and heart work harder when climbing those stairs. That explains why I get so tired after using the stairmaster after 5 minutes.
