Howe Street stairs | bike commute

Sometimes you just know the scheduled workout is going to suck and today was one of those days.

I think I went harder than I thought last Saturday and two days of easy movement was not sufficient to let me bounce back. Did I take the day off? Ha! Nope, I plowed through the workout anyway. I mean c'mon, I had Jim Kodjababian depending on me for company and just can't let your friend down.

Needless to say I was shattered at the end of this stair session. On the last runner I had to walk the flat sections between the flights after I got half way up. That has only happened to me once before.

What doesn't kill you... or something like that. Here's hoping anyway.

My one consolation was that Jim got there a tad early so whereas I usually get in five warm up flights before he shows, I just got in four today.

I thought that my ride into work would feel good but it just felt ungodly slow and laborious.

At lunch I did make it down to the IMA for some more stretching. I gotta say, it feels really good when I'm finished.
