I really thought I was in decent shape...until I went up the stairs at Thousand Steps beach ONE time. My legs were shaky and my heart pounding. After 3 more trips, I was afraid my legs would give out and I would keel over in front of all the professional athletes handling the stairs with ease. If you want a tough, non-impact workout, check out these stairs at PCH and 9th St. P.S. There really isn't 1000 steps, but it feels like it!
