It’s been a great training week…40+ miles of cardio and tons of strength conditioning.
I climbed stairs today. After a 10 mile (hard) bike ride. Rode with a friend at Lake Miramar, which is a 5 mile loop, one way. But it’s quite hilly and curvy. So got to work on some bike handling skills. Afterwards, we decided to run the “Stairs of Death”…that’s literally what they are called when you google them. No joke. Tierrasanta Stairs of death. Awesome. Let’s run them!
That’s how us endurance athletes roll.
Our legs were pretty shaky, so we kept it to 5 sets. I’m so bummed I’m flying out next week, I will definitely add these to my weekly workouts!
1. Warm-up 2. Lunges (every other step) 3. Side lunges 4. Run 5. Fast walk
Not only is it a great aerobic exercise, but also an anaerobic one as well. I don’t think my little heart has ever worked quite so hard! Great for lower body conditioning and power as well. The workouts are endless. You don’t have to run up and down over and over to get a kickbutt workout.
Oh, and if it looks like I have shorter hair, well…
Hope you found time to sweat today!
