Stairs baby! Except today for some reason I could nut muster the will to run so walked every flight. I did walk them two-at-a-time and pretty fast (I lapped a 'runner' twice) but I am starting to feel 1) somewhat unmotivated to do stuff and 2) like I am not recovering very well.
Regarding recovery, it's pretty freaking obvious to me that I need to stretch and get massage. My legs are tight like guitar strings these days and so when I do have an off day or easy day they are not able to recover like they should.
So many things to do, so little time; same old, same old.
One nice thing about today was the sun rising while I was at the Howe Street stairs. It's a blast not doing the entire workout in the dark.
On the other hand today was pretty gray and I rode home in the rain for the first time in quite a while. At least it was not cold. And did I mention my weight is off the charts? Man, I had a handle on it after the holidays and these last two weeks it has been creeping up. Gotta get a grip.
