Once again I got sucked into my computer instead of just getting out there.
After getting up promptly when my alarm went off I headed down stairs to change. As I usually do I sat down to check email (read: surf YouTube, check cycling results, etc.) and suddenly I was dorking around way too long. I finally tore myself away from the keyboard.
Originally I had planned on hitting the Howe Street stairs this morning but by this time that was out of the question so I just went for a quick run along Lake WA Blvd from our house. Of course it was a beautiful morning and in spite of it being pretty early still there were several other people doing the same. That was cool to see.
With the improvement in weather conditions today I also rode my bike to work and went for a lunch run.
How did I feel after taking it easy yesterday? Like dirt. Still.
I feel so SLOW. Not sure if I need more rest or speed work or both.
