Hard workout on the stair master judging by the pool of sweat underneath the machine when I finished.

430 floors in 60 minutes. 

PM: 6 mile walk from downtown SLC to my house. I will give myself credit for 3 miles of running for that since I ran some.

I hope you didn't break my favorite stairmaster. Nice work! Why the long walk? I would have given you a ride.

Fritz - you do 600 floors/hour don't you?

Just went out for dinner downtown and felt I needed a walk after. Weird, I know.

I think my best is 580 or so and that was basically maxing out the machine I was using.

Walking is cool I guess. Just takes a lot of time.
