#DiSStairsDay: how do you take your stairs?


#1

One at a time? Two at a time? A mixture?

If I can take stairs two at a time, I will.


#2

two at a time on the way up
one at a time on the way down


#3

Very gingerly these days.


#4

Will often do that jumpy thing of swinging on both handrails at work to take the last five steps.


#5

How many stairs/steps are there in your house? 19 for me. Great thread.


#6


#7

I think there are 22 in mine: 11 from the ground floor to the first floor, a step up along the landing, and then another ten going up to the top floor.


#8

^this


#9

57 to reach the front door


#10

the people who live on the ground floor complain about us walking up the stairs too loudly…


#11

Not on Stairbook


#12

Up the bum.


#13

Two at a time on the way up, one at a time on the way down until it gets to the penultimate stair in which case I will take the bottom two in one go if I am kicking off my left foot and landing on my right but will take them one at a time if kicking off my right foot and landing on my left.

Thanks for reading.

With milk and two sugars

Y’know where I really have problems with this - steps that are quite far apart, like you might get where they’ve put steps in on a hill in a woodland footpath just by putting in risers but the tread is just earth (like this)


The treads are too far apart for one step but too close together for two!


#16

This is an excellent post, well-researched, relatable and very well-executed. I’m in full-agreement.


#17

agreed

but on the way down it is a lot of fun to bound down one step at a time


#18

I tend to run up stairs and jump down them, I cant help myself I just cant go up them slowly


#19

There classic leaping stairs


#20

I even looked up the terms “riser” and “tread” especially
