core | commute | stairs

Got to the gym, rode my bike to work and then wham… a super stressful day at the office. Not fun.

I was so wound up I rode home in the saddle all the way which is not that easy on my town bike. I guess I was looking for some way to blow off steam and this kinda did that.

When I got home Shelley said, "Want to hit the stairs?" and I was like, "Uh… okay." Man am I glad we did. I met a friend there and we were going just about as fast as you can and still call it walking. And talking the whole time! Nice.

Thanks to Shelley for getting me out there and to Martin for pushing me when I would otherwise have languished.

As another bonus NONE of my injuries bothered me on the stairs today. I can still feel my left hand/wrist when I ride the bike big time but stairs are okay. That's something anyway.
