Ooh... You're all very active I see.

Today I used a step to travel the last mile to work, it was harder than I expected it to, probably because walking (which I try to incorporate regularily in my day) uses different muscles.
And I admit being a bit scared when it went relatively fast downhill.

I'm working a four week shutdown and have little choice but to be active. Last night was a doozie.

Ended up the day yesterday at 13,233 steps and 31 floors. From midnight to 6 AM today, I am at 11,343 steps and 44 floors.

Yesterday, I rode 40 miles on a 10 speed, and it was torture; it rained, and it was super humid; and, and, and....it was worth it.

I rode to Indian Rocks on the Gulf Coast, and I went down a dirt boat launch road; and there were tiny crabs crawling around in mud holes.
They were the ones with a giant claw on one arm, but they were baby ones or something; about he size of a dime.

There is a red tide here, and I think that they were escaping it, by going on land. It was as cool as all get out, to see them. I am a nature fiend, I suppose.

A repeat of busy at work, ended the day with 20,287 steps and 72 floors. 12,067 steps and 72 floors today from midnight to 6 AM. I would have loved to ridden the elevator this morning if someone wouldn't have left the door open when I really needed it.

Ended the day of the 21st with 19,424 steps and 91 floors, the 22nd with 15,261 steps and 44 floors, and yesterday with 13,008 steps and 19 floors. Took advantage of taking last night off from work, but after I ate, I took the dog on a 2 mile walk before dark. The next couple of nights at work should be slow and then business will start picking up as maintenance work starts wrapping up and start up prep of the equipment begins.

I've about made up my mind that I will not do another one of these outages unless dire circumstances happen to make me need to retain current company insurance coverage for my wife. I turn 65 the end of April 2020, the outage will be in March of 2020, and my vacation days should get me to 'Elvis has left the building' status in February.

So far I have ridden a bike 5 miles, and I look like something that the cat dragged in. I am all sweaty and unkempt looking, from 5 lousy miles!

And at 62 years of age, that gives me real concern; it might be time for another treadmill test.

Do you climb building stairwells for exercise? I used to do 40 floors per set, when I trained on stairs; and I used real stairs, and not a machine.

I preferred to do it that way, and it was always available to me; I have used a Stairmaster, and it is fine, but not as dynamic.

But I always took the hard settings on them, and I was brutal on myself. It was some kind of nutty quirk I suppose, but that is how I did it. Perhaps, I should have been easier on myself; because you can't beat a Stairmaster.

[PS: sorry about using the word 'stair' 1/2 dozen times, I think that I have forgotten how to use a pronoun.]

I started taking the stairs more than the elevator after I had quad bypass surgery when I went back to work in a less demanding physical capacity. I was walking up and down 4 flight of stairs a couple of times a day and tried to increase that over time. I just continued to use the stairs over the elevator after returning to my regular job. On outages, I try to take the stairs unless I need to hurry, then I take the elevator. If the elevator is being used by a lot of people, I'm usually impatient and just walk.

I made a total of 56 floors yesterday and 14,442 steps. Since midnight last night I had 37 floors and 10,614 steps. As the maintenance and contractors finish with more systems, the operations crew, will get busier and busier preparing to get it all back up and running.

It's been a pretty inactive week - my minimum is 10,000 steps a day but this week I seem to be getting only half of that - I got to "step" it up before this becomes a habit.

Things should be slowing down from "have to walk" to "want to walk" at work. I've averaged 13,494.2 steps and 48 floors per day this month.
