I wasn’t planning on last night’s workout being a record-breaker, but it was. I love a nice surprise! Especially when, as I mentioned in my last post, I’m getting back on track after a less-active-than-normal week. My successes last night were in the stairwell of the Wells Fargo Center downtown:

Check out this photo from after my workout on Monday:
Drenched in sweat? On the 26th floor? You don’t have to be Nancy Drew (or even George or Bess) to figure out that this picture was taken in a stairwell. And that means one thing…
…My training has resumed! I’ve got a stair climb race coming up!
