When I got to the gym today I decided to do the StairMaster for a warm up. I ended up staying at work a little later than planned so I only had about 10 minutes to do the stairs. I don't know about anyone else, but the StairMaster is my Achilles heel of exercise. I immediately get my heart rate up and begin huffing and puffing. Even at my fittest, the stairs kicked my butt. My husband always makes fun of me because I sound like the most out of shape person trying to catch my breathe going up a flight of stairs and I have ALWAYS been like that. Today was no exception. Even though I didn't have a very long warm up, it definitely got my heart rate up!
You can tell from the blurriness that I was trying to catch my breathe after my short 8 minute climb! But it felt great (once I was done!)
Lets hope 5am comes with a sweet jog on the treadmill tomorrow morning :)
