Speed on Saturday

Today, Sam and I sprinted Summit Path. Right before Washington Square off of Beacon Street, Summit Path consists of a 250 foot vertical rise over about an eight of a mile. There are a ton of steps between the beginning and the end, perhaps 150 or so.

It's a pretty good lung-burner. Because stairs require you to stay on your toes and keep your knees high, they spank the hell out of the quads.

We gave it three tries. The first two were for speed. On the third run I hit every stair. This causes you to remain in a more upright position, and takes more effort than running the stairs two at a time. Sam went for speed every time.

Here are our times. Go faster!

Speed 2:00, 1:53
Every Stair 2:35

Speed 3:09, 2:58, 3:09
