Do You Still Run Up A Flight Of Steps?

I've got lots of steps in my house, and tend to run up them or take them 2 at a time fairly often.  I wonder how long that will continue?  

I always feel impatient with steps - especially at an airport, mall, office, or randomly outside.  If they're there, and I'm by myself, I'll generally hustle up them.

My condo was especially purchased with no steps, mainly because I'm more likely to fall down the steps than run up the steps.

Huh, I posted about this a coupla years ago when I seemed to have lost the ability to run up steps. So I've made it a concerted effort since then to pick up the pace. I can now run up the steps (and frequently do)

No. Current home has 3 steps. Next home, next home, if multi story will have an elevator. Showed wife new construction townhome oceanfront. Initially turned off the 3 floors, until pointed out the elevator on the floor plan. Changed her mind until she saw the price at $1.04M.

No.   Walking is just fine. 

If needed we could live on the first floor of our home.   

That said, we don't and I use our steps several times a day.

My Garmin watch even tracks that...

The specialist's office is on the fourth floor and the elevator goes up there. I needed to go from the fourth floor to the third. I asked the girl at the desk, Where are the stairs? She said, Go to the end of the hall and it's the last door on the right. I said, Never mind, too far to walk. (and laughed)

I've recently run up wide steps outside for exercise, but not in my house.

Sometimes I'm tempted to run up my house's steps like I used to, but they're not very wide, I'm 71 and one skip could end up doing a lot more damage than in the past - even if I just slipped a few steps.

Nancy and I were talking yesterday about buying a house with no stairs. We both agreed it has to have at least one step. Nancy’s house has steps everywhere. To use the side door there are four steps, to go in the family room there is a step down, to go out on the screened in back porch there are two levels one is level with the family room and the upper level is three steps higher. Both the front and the back porches have stairs from outside, she has a basement and an upstairs where the bedrooms and bathrooms are. Both our houses have too many stairs for an older couple. They are not a problem now but we are not getting any younger. For now we are enjoying all the stairs. Nancy is more than a foot shorter than me so when she stands one step higher than me it’s the perfect level for hugs and kisses. We do a lot of that. :wub:

Two at a time. 

Yeah - it is hard to do single steps if you have any momentum/speed. I like two at a time when walking as well.  But it varies according to all sorts of conditions.
