Mondays at Red Rocks

Every Monday morning, for the past three years, I head up to Red Rocks and do the following exercise regimen.

    Endless stairs at Red Rocks
  9. Go to the bottom of the stairs on the north side of the seats.
  10. Alternating between right & left, two stairs at a time, walk to the top of the stairs. No stopping.

Do this and you’ll be ready for boarding and/or cycling season. It’s amazing.
