From memory last year I did doubles as much as I could, and singles when I needed a break. Really looking forward to not doing it in heavy boots!

Going back to when I did stair running, I tried to lead of on the same foot at the start of each flight, much the same as a Hurdler always leads of with the same foot

At the top of each flight, its easier to land on the inside foot, so as you can pivot around to start the new flight. But you need to know how many steps are in a flights, so you can work out if you start of with a 1 or 2 step
