Spring: Sunshine, Stairs, and Stadiums

Spring is finally here… and it couldn’t feel any better. While rebounding from my Achilles injury, it has definitely been an adjustment getting back into the tougher cardio workouts that I was used to pre-injury.

One great thing I’ve been able to do to improve my overall fitness since getting cleared (yay!) is get back to stadiums. Running up stairs (whether it be at a nearby stadium or otherwise) is a superb way to adjust yourself to hill workouts and incline training — besides being a great cardio workout. This week, I was able to go to the Harvard Stadium a few times before practice to get in some workouts.

Haven’t tried a stair workout or stadiums before? Start small. Begin by going to your local gym and using a Stairmaster or going to your local stadium and walking up the stairs instead of running — whatever it takes to adjust your body to the workout.

[FYI: A full stadium workout is completed when you run up and down each flight of stairs in each section of the stadium.]

Here’s to lots of sunshine, stairs, and stadiums this spring!

Tri Hard,
Caity
