Kind of ran out of motivation/time/something today so watched some television and hooked myself up to my Compex Performance and ran a strengthening program. Done and done.

I almost took another day off today. Motivation is gone.
Luckily Jon Robinson gave me a shout and asked me to go running so I went.
I felt like crap! Right from the start I felt like I was breathing through the world's smallest straw, so much so that I was wheezing while my heart rate was just 125 bpm. We slowed down a bit and I recovered some but every time our pace would get close to 8:00 I was in a world of hurt. Shoot. I was laughing, Jon was just going for a shakeout run prior to racing the White River 50 Mile and I couldn't keep up. Sigh.
My ride home was very slow.

Wow, what a difference a couple of days make.
Tuesday I was on fire! Wednesday the motivation ebbed so I took a day off. Last night I met my friend Tony Callen at Fremont Brewing and that was the beginning of the end for me. I took the bus to work today and still felt like crap when I walked home. Some people learn things much slower than others.

Great day! I was surprised I had this much energy but my lunch run was super mellow and I might still be coasting from all that speed last weekend. At lunch I ran with Steven Kurle who is always great to talk to and great company.
At the stairs I felt slower than usual but I still got in 13 flights in 45 minutes which is what I have been doing when I feel super so go figure.
At Fleet Feet Sports Seattle we started pretty mellow but then I was solid on the hill and picked up the pace just a bit in the last mile. Solid in other words.

Got a text from Todd Morse Tucker last night asking if I wanted to run today. I was SO close to saying no but in the end I'm glad I accepted the invite.
I think today was my slowest time on this loop but I finished feeling better than when I started so that's a good thing, right? I didn't have any pain or specific issues from the weekend, just overall tiredness.
