She Huffed and She Puffed… last year!

Glories from the RR track

My daughter is a member of a Girl Scout troop that meets in the third story of an old building with no elevator. We had the first meeting of the year the other night. I had to climb the staircase twice because when you get to the top of a long staircase you always realize that you’ve left something in your car.  Anyway, I was telling my husband that it was the first time I remembered getting to the top of those stairs without being completely winded, and I thought my 31 days of biking probably had something to do with it. He told me I really needed to put that in my blog. So here it is! My first measurable result: Able to Climb Stairs Without Gasping at the Top.

Days since I committed to riding every day: 34

Days since I started blogging about it: 13

Days I have actually ridden: 31

Given my past spotty exercise habits, I’m encouraged!

    My walking partner AKA Personal Trainer remarked this morning that she thought my biking was increasing my stamina, too! I’m not so sure; I suspect the 50 degree temps and tailwind was helping, but it was a nice comment and maybe, now that I’ve seen your post about stair climbing, I’ll give her post more credence!
