Another day of fitness AND my first Fleet Feet Sports Seattle run in almost two months! I did feel a little tentative, my runs this weekend were not overly inspiring in terms of confidence but they went okay so I resolved to take it ultra easy and walk it out of necessary.
I didn't need to walk during the run. Bonus. But I was pretty tight at the end and did need to walk and stretch quite a bit after. Once again riding home after helped some.
I hooked up with Ned (forgot his last name) for the run and he was great company. Truth be told, it was fun to run and talk and not be maxed out. And on the up side, I didn't have to walk the hill!
My Garmin Fenix 2 has a 'recovery' feature. If you wear a heart rate strap, when you are done it will tell you how long you need to recover. After the stairs it said 31 hours. After the run it said 24 hours. Not sure how to use this yet.
