I doth dally too much!
Once again I dorked around way too long after getting up and then had to rush out to the stairs. Since I was short on time I figured why not try running back-to-back flights? I walked one to warm up and then ran eight flights one step at a time. Then I walked one to cool down.
This brought back some of the all too familiar wheezing and shortness of breath from my stair workouts last winter! Good times. Still, running one step at a time is significantly easier than two at a time; I still have a ways to go in other words.
In the afternoon the weather was absolutely fabulous so I took the long way home and wore a sleeveless shirt. That shirt might have been pushing it just a little but what the hell. I also wore some dark sunglasses while riding my bike for the first time this year. All these signs point to things I like.
On my way to work I stopped by FootWorks PT for another check in with Neal Goldberg. I have progressed from doing static balance and rehab to doing dynamic balance and rehab. This means I am now hopping and jumping around and it's tiring! Especially after stairs. 30 minutes of PT and I was pouring sweat. I took it easy on the way to work just to cool down!
