In something that I rarely do, I drove 20 minutes to workout on the downtown streets of Kansas City. I love the city, and I'd planned for a while to do my recovery work there on a Sunday morning. So I started the day with a light 8 mile recovery run through the streets of the KC metro. And then I ran 20 repeats of 50 stairs up and down the East side of the Memorial. Stairs are such a good workout for the hips, glutes, and quads, and frankly I don't get to do them as often as I'd like. I've got a few small sets of stairs here and there in Lee's Summit, but nothing like the ones at the Liberty Memorial.
Plus, you can't beat the view I had this morning during my workout. The Liberty Memorial is a local landmark featuring a beautiful view of downtown Kansas City. It's also the only World War I National Museum in the United States. It's an absolute Kansas City treasure.
All in all it was a good weekend of working out. And hopefully I can incorporate more stairs into upcoming marathon training.
... Be Great Today!
