Have you ever heard of a tower climb? We have a few here in Charlotte. One is the “Race the Top,” which is a 50-story, 672 vertical feet, 1,194 step race to the top of the Duke Energy Building.
Past winners of the race have completed the climb in just over 7 minutes! Crazy, huh? The average is closer to about 20 minutes.
I’ve been thinking about the tower climb a lot because I’ve recently kind of feel in love with the stairclimber at the gym. As part of my Commitment goals, I’m trying to do different types of workouts so I don’t get bored and fall back off the wagon. In addition to stairclimbing, I’ve picked up the rower last night – it was fun.
Hell, maybe I’ll find myself in a Zumba class soon! I’ve always been nervous to take a dance class, but I think I need to keep challenging myself to do new stuff. It’s good for the body and mind.
