Let me start this story last Friday. I took the day off of work to run 12 miles. I know I'm weird. It was still a little chilly and icy so I ran on the treadmill at the community center. It went great. All my miles were consistent and I felt amazing afterwards. Other than some minor chafing on my arms (I didn't use Body Guide on my arms, doh!) I had no pain!
Fast forward to Wednesday. I had to go up to the 22nd floor. From my floor to the 22nd floor requires two elevator rides. On the way down I thought instead of taking the elevators, I'll walk down the stairs. It is only 8 flights (granted one flight in my building is 22 steps so in reality it was more like 16 normal flights). Anyways, by the time I got down to the 14th floor my legs were wobbly. The next day my quads were very tight and mad at me. I went sat in the hot tub and tried to massage them but it didn't help. I felt worse today. I think it is crazy is that I can run 12 miles and feel great but 8 flights of stairs and I'm sore and limping. I know, I know, different muscle groups...

Last night I was walking down the stairs at home and slipped off a step and went down on my ass and slide down the stairs. Seriously? I'm not badly injured other than my butt is sore.

Stairs may have won this week but next week will be different!
