Howe Street stairs | bike commute

My sleep schedule is not improving much but I still got out to the stairs today! And after a slow start it turned into a reasonable workout meaning that I 1) didn't feel like I was going to die and 2) my pace stayed steady.

Today is the second day that I have been able to alternate running flights with walking flights and it felt fine (on my ankle anyway). Even jogging up these stairs one step at a time spikes my heart rate significantly higher than fast walking two steps at a time. See below.

On my ride home I stopped off at Fleet Feet Sports on Capitol Hill for the Seattle Running Club board meeting and guess what, I'm now on the board. I guess I tend to gravitate to that sort of thing... Plus, I do like to be involved in whatever clubs I join so there you go.

Riding home from the meeting in the dark was FUN. It was dry, calm and my legs felt better than when I rode to the meeting.
