Thank you for all the feed back :)
I went ahead and took the steps this morning. Was trotting up the steps, doing good until about floor 4. Then, my pace slowed. I forgot to time myself but I think I was well under 10 minutes. So, 8 flights of stairs in under 10 minutes.. I feel the burn. LOL!
Next time I will time it and see if it is worth tracking or just chalk it up to a good a.m. cardio boost.
