Stair Climb Results

"Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat." ~ Malcolm Forbes

I DID IT!!!!
It was by far the hardest thing I've ever done..... even more than the 10k run complete in my youth. Sherri sat at the dinning room table (that's near the basement door) and kept track of my progress and cheered me on for the entire event.

I completed the 1,778 stairs (up and down) in 37 mins, 27 seconds.... before crumbling in a heap on the floor at the top of the stairs. It took me the better part of 15 mins before I was able to convince myself to get up and try to navigate the stairs to the 2nd floor to have a hot soak in the tub. After I got up Sherri had to mop up the puddle of sweat that I left on the hardwood floor.

My legs are soooooooooo sore today (2 days later). My quad's and the muscle below my calf (which I found out is called the Soleus) are so sore that I'm kinda hobbling around.

Congratulations to my younger brother Kevin who completed the real CN Tower Climb in 20 mins & 10 seconds..... Way to go Kev.
