Lazy Saturday

I slept in this morning. I haven't done that in weeks. I didn't crawl out of bed until 7:30. Then I grabbed my high-protein cereal and plunked down in front of the computer. I have now caught up on e-mail.

Lori made me a cup of coffee and I decided to punch out a blog. I was debating what to write about today and then I remembered our drive home last night from a new restaurant in the East Village - Alba. The food was very nice.

We were driving through downtown and for the first time in a long time, I noticed the 801 Grand building. Being it was night it was lit beautifully and created an impressive sight in the sky. And then I became nervous about tomorrow.

The words '41 floors' were daunting on their own, but a bit abstract. Having bothered to look straight up the building last night I realized fully what I have put before myself. 630 feet straight up, one stair at a time.

That said, I will do it. I will climb Iowa's only would be mountain and I will do it without keeling over. I have trained for this and I am ready. I am looking forward to the challenge. I will try to blog tomorrow afternoon with the results.

In the mean time I am headed to Fitness World West. I am going to do some cardio and a lot of upper body. The legs are getting a day off for the most part to be ready for tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Yours in fitness, Kate

  1. Good luck! I used to work in 801 Grand and can't even imagine climbing all 41 floors! I can't wait to read your blog about it!
