Running Stairs

Friday, January 23, 2009

What do you do in Minnesota in the dead of winter when its too cold to walk outside? You go to the local ice arena and walk inside. Debra and I found that walking was great but our work out got even better when we started running the stairs in addition to our walking.

We have met some interesting people. One day we had 2 little boys that were ice skating and wanted to race us each time around...of course we let them win;-) We also met a young 76 year old woman that used to skate professionally. She was amazingly graceful on the ice. Then there was the senior skate, watching all the seniors skate, some holding hands, some skating backwards, some just learning.

It's been a wonderful winter, walking indoors...... and what can I say? It's a great work out in the dead of winter.

    Do you and Debra always coordinate your outfits? LOL! It is so motivating to read about your exercise. Running the stairs sounds like a great workout! Keep it up!

    Great picture! You have such a beautiful smile. Better you than me running the stairs, I would probably break my neck. Great use of what you have to work with though. Running stairs is tough, but then again you are one tough cookie.

    What a great idea! Interesting sounds in there, too, I bet. Everything kind of echos. Plus, it's not as cold as outside but it must be invigorating.
