116,000+ stairs and streaks

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Today was my 53rd day in a row of climbing the Eiffel Tower. I've climbed 116,424 stairs during the Spring Into Summer 5% Challenge which began May 11th.

Today I also finished climbing Mt. Everest for the 3rd time - 116,115 stairs.

My sister has also started climbing stairs and she texted me this morning that for the first time she made it up 20 floors without stopping - twice! Yeah Dina!

For the 93rd day in a row I've exercised at least 10 minutes a day. (60 minutes climbing stairs this morning.)

My average number of stairs a day is 2,206 - though my goal is to just get to the top of the Eiffel Tower each day - 1,655 stairs.

I'm also averaging 6.1 miles and 13,463 steps a day... some really high mileage days have skewed this average up higher than I really typically do in a day.

Well, I best get back to work. This is my busy time of year... but I'm making time for me every day.
