I am the stair master
Maybe not the master but this is what I doing during my lunch hours. Not as much fun as riding but, it's easier since I do not have to leave my office building. Lately I have been running up ever step from the 1st floor to the top of the 8th floor. That's 24 steps per floor. I do ever step the 1st time. I ride the elevator down to catch my breath and so I don't fall. There have been three people fall down the stairs since I started working in this building. The last gal completely shattered her elbow and will have perminant loss. I don't need that. The 2nd time up I take two steps at a time. 3rd time up, every step and the 4th time up I take two steps at a time. That averages around 504 steps per lunch hour.
It also doesn't bother my severe shin splits that I have been having. Doc tells me to not run at all for two weeks but I convinced him that running up the stairs doesn't hurt so he said to continue with it.
Been doing a little roller riding but not enough to start mentioning the miles involved.
Over and out....
