Does vacuuming around baseboards in two rooms count?

Thing is, a little over 2 years ago, I tripped on something and broke my foot, ankle, tore tendons and ligamints. It is only in the past 9 months or so that I no longer limp.
I want to start using the stairs for part of my exercise program, but I have this fear of tripping [ if you knew how I actually injured myself, you might understand. It was almost as silly as "tripping on carpet fibers."
I know I will never be running up and down the stairs, or even going quickly as I am so afraid of injuring myself again.
So, would walking at a steady, non-brisk pace up and down the stairs be good for me, or just a waste of time being as I will be going pretty slow?
By slow, I mean about one step per second. The steps are about 6 and a half high, by about 24 by 26 inches.
Thanks.
I think it would be good exercise at any pace you would be comfortable with, just be careful. I walk a lot of stairs at work, losing focus and making a mis-step, even with handrails, could be bad.

Hurricane clean-up - mostly piling up big branches that came down. Lost power Saturday and headed for the basement Sunday morning 2 am when the winds suddenly changed directions and became even stronger. No house clean-up thank goodness but lots of property clean-up. My trees have fewer branches and look somewhat shredded.

Too bad about the trees. But so glad you're safe and also your house. What an ordeal for you all in the path of Dorian.
