I am still sticking with my mid-shift stair-climbing break at work. The first night was 312 steps. The second night, my calves and hamstrings tight as can be, the first set of flights was painful, but I still managed three trips for 312 steps. Last night, my calves and hamstrings still tight as can be, I could only do it once, for 104 steps.
Today, I will give my little calves and hamstrings a break and hope they cooperate on my Sunday 10-miler.
But I do really enjoy the mid-shift break. I highly recommend it for anyone out there - if you don't have stairs, even a loop around the office just to get yourself out of the chair.
Now...off to work.
