Take the Stairs!
February 4, 2008 by Bryon Powell · 3 Comments
Even if I’m no longer training for Hardrock, I’ve taken a liking to taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work. This change surely can’t hurt my training for whatever race(s) I chose to run and it’s a better environmental choice – by taking the stairs I save about 300 kilowatts a day. As a person burns about 5 kCal (or calories for you normal folk) per flight, I burn also an extra 40 calories per day if I don’t do anything more than climb the stairs to my office in the morning.
