Are you ready for November?

Are you ready for the November Challenge.

Challenge No. 3 is starting tomorrow.

What is it?

Are you feeling the anticipation.




In fact 5,000 stairs for November.

I know this is a lot.

That is:

  • 166 stairs per day

  • 1,250 per week (worked out over 4 weeks)

  • stairs 2 days a week - 625 stairs each workout

  • stairs 3 days a week - 500 stairs each workout

  • Also count all your incidental stairs that you climb. If you live in a double story house, you will be surprised.

Try your best.

Take it easy.

Rest when you need to.

Make it fun.

I know this is coming from the person who says that fun runs are fun!!

There are so many walks that have stairs.

Get out and get amongst it.

I love this time of the year for bush walking.

Here are some great walks that I can personally recommend.

  • 1000 stairs - Kokoda track memorial walk, Dandenong Ranges National Park. Tree Fern Gully Track, Tremont.

  • 1001 steps - Bayview Park, 188T Quarry Road, Narre Warren Mount Cannibal Reserve, Garfield

  • You Yangs Regional Park, Flinders Peak, Turntable Drive, Little River.

  • Werribee Gorge Circuit walk, 204 Myers Road, Pentlands Hills.

These are just a few.

I will show case some more throughout the month.

Why is stair climbing good for us?

What are the benefits?

Start off with a couple of flights, Start slowly and build it up as you feel more confident and get fitter.
