little exercise challange at work!

I am on the start of week 4 I'm keen to keep my exercise going but when your Working long days out of the house at 8am back in about 8.45 pm you can't do anything although resting is good like Mr niceguy has explained too. So just finished 2long days set my self a small challange For Mon/Tues/ Some Friday. I work in a large building 7 floors to each floor there are 3 sets of stairways there is 10 steps on each stairway which is 30 steps to each floor. I would love to be able to start from the bottem and go all the way up and back down but if I tried to do that by the time I got to the 4th floor I would probably need to call a crash team! So I'm taking the lift to the 4th floor walking up 3 floors 90 steps then I go down 7floors which is 210 steps down I know it's easier to come down but my motto is better for me to do that then take the lift. So I did this midmorning and 5pm yesterday and today (takes 6/7mins) So over the next couple of months when I'm working I'm going to keep doing this and every couple of weeks I will start at a floor lower and see if I can achieve this going from the bottem to the top all in one go, so at least I'm doing a little bit while working and probably total of 15 mins per day ................................wish me luck!!!!!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Brilliant well done, that sounds a great way of getting some exercise into your life, I'm sure it won't be long until your running up and down all 7 flights of stairs without stopping x

well I try it will be a bit like C25k training for me !!! Lol


You sound like you're doing well.I keep trying to do a little more .I thought i would clean my daughter in laws bathroom for her but my pulse went up to 138 so not sure if I'm doing myself any good.I wish you well.


Ah thank you I've been down this road too many times enough is enough if I went to clean my son's bedroom my pulse would go up !! A little exercise is great but no one will know your body as well as you and we have to listen to it so do what ever you can even if very gentle and if too much rest the heat today can take the energy out of you also so don't forget that.I'm not doing steps today I'm house working! !boo nice roast done half way through my ironing I borrowed my mons new steam generator iron OMG I can't believe I've not had one all these years guess I be shopping on Internet later anything for easy life and easy ironing take care xx

Onwards and Downwards xxxxπŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†


Thanks Lizzie 70 it's good to hear someone else having the same problems. I just wonder what harm such high pulses do to us. It's so maddening especially when you feel you want to do something. X
