Still plugging along. I'm still trying to add some work on the stair machine after my runs to burn a few more calories and some variety. After 4.5 miles yesterday afternoon I was able to log in 11 minutes on the stair machine. I'm going to try to build up to 15 or 20 minutes.
I'm using what I would call an old school stair machine, not an eliptical. I seem to feel like I get a much better work out on the old school type.
