Feat Accompli!  

Juan Llave Lozano on 03/09/2010 - 18:47 Comment


what about places that don't allow you take the stairs for some reason? i have to go to the spanish consulate a few times and i'm pretty sure that they won't let you wander the building...

ha! leave it to the other rule nerd to ask what i was thinking!

i work on the 2nd floor, but they lock the doors in the stairwell, so i can only take the stairs on the rare occasions when the elevator doesn't work.

am i breaking the rules if i take the stairs whenever it is allowed?  I'll even skip the escalator at the Lex/63rd stop where its 4 floors from the platform.

Is it

(a) Everyday or

(b) Just the days you workout or

(c) At least once during the challenge?

I work on the 47th Floor of my building so I cannot do the stairs... However i will do stairs up and down at my apartment building, in the subways, and whenver there's an option for escalator vs. stair, I'll do stair... I think that's reasonable for me... (last night I had packages and I was glad I didn't have to do the stairs until tomorrow morning!)

I walk up 5 flights of stairs evey day to my apartment, and I have been walking up the stairs at Columbia instead of taking the elevator.


Do i mark this done now? or at the end of the challenge...hmm...I'll just do it now and continue on with it.

Is this challenge long or one day??? My ass needs to know...

sandyliz's picture

Piece of cake. I walk up to my 3rd floor apartment every day and up subways stairs at least twice a day.

love me my 5 floor walk-up!

carrying groceries and Xmas presents up stairs is not fun, but I don't have a choice at my apartment.

My townhouse in Portland is 4 stories tall.  Seriously.  Bottom is the garage, then the living room and kitchen, 3rd story is master bedroom 1, 4th is master bedroom 2.  I walk these everyday :)

Other than that, two floors everyday at work.

Haven't used an elevator in a long long time.

That picture loooks like the one I took at Ponce De Leon lighthouse (FL)

lhlady517's picture

I took the stairs at work and at home (no alternative there) and also tried to take them whenever it was another option.  Had to take the escalators or elevators a few times, but overall took the stairs.

andrealc23's picture

I typically take the stairs unless I am not allowed to. I have been trapped in too many elevators in the past to ever willingly take one.
