Since my left knee is pretty jacked up when I run or walk I figured why not go for a ride. No dice. I could feel it even while dorking around today on my town bike. The slide into depression continues.
There were some bright moments today.
- I tried to ride up Queen Ann Hill. Normally this would be out of the question when using one one gear and platform pedals but I found a circuitous route that almost got me there. In the end I had to walk one cobbled block but it was fun to try.
- I rode around the summit of Queen Anne on roads I have not traveled in ages! And they were beautiful!
- I stopped by Seven Hills Running Shop for the first time and chatted with Phil Kochik about running packs. I gotta say, this is one awesome location for a running store in terms of access to Discovery Park (trails) and various road running routes. I didn't see any obvious parking but here's hoping he has that too.
- On my way home riding along Elliot Ave. I had a tailwind and so was able to maintain 18-19 mph on my town bike which is pretty darn good.
