100 Flights of Stairs

The humidity was around 94% when I woke up this morning, and I just couldn't bring myself to do an outdoor workout. Instead, I decided the stairs in my new building would make an excellent fitness tool, particularly if I climbed 100 flights of them. I go up stairs all the time, I told myself. How hard could 100 flights of stairs possibly be?

It was a serious shirt soaker. I'm slow, so it took me almost an hour to finish this workout (including the time it took me to descend once I made it to the top floor), but I'm thinking those stairs need to be a weekly thing. It got my heart rate up, it worked my leg muscles, and the windows in the stairwell provided some great views and people watching. Plus, if the workout gets too easy, I can always add more flights of stairs or try to do it faster. How did you get your sweat on today?
