102 ‘floors’ climbed on some days.

I live in a 4-story house, which is on the side of 1,450′ mountain. So, it is NOT difficult for I to cover a fair chunk of elevation per day. Plus, I have ALWAYS liked to climb stairs. Whenever possible I will opt to climb stairs than take an escalator or elevator — and it doesn’t matter if I am carrying stuff.

That I am in the 99% percentile, for my age, viz., 65-69, makes me happy. And I get accused that all I do is sit in front of a PC! Well, it can’t be bad … right? If all I do is sit in front of a computer and also manage to average 52 floors climbed a day.

In our house my ‘office’, where I spent much of the day, is on the 4th floor. The family TV room, plus the utility room which has my exercise clothes, are on the bottom floor. So I, go up and down 3 flights of stairs multiple times a day. So, even on the days I do not go running I end up covering well in excess of 10 floors a day.

1,467 floors climbed in a month. Basically, 14,670′. Kind of halfway up Mount Everest.

Yes, I know that there are others that do more than this — but also those that do less.

Enjoy. Happy Holidays. If you are around, I will always be happy to climb stairs with you or hike up a mountain.
