It really was wet this morning so treadmill it is... and what a soul sapper it was.
Originally the plan was to do something faster or perhaps try a progression run but no dice! It was all I could to not step off and/or slow it down. Sheesh. Sometimes I wonder if I should just bail when I feel like this or if I should HTFU. Bottom line is I'm in for the fun so the number of times that I can muster the will to harden will be few and far between. I actually had to stop for 5-10 seconds with 10 minutes to go and again with five minutes to go. :( My body/legs/breathing was fine, my head was just not in it today.
Anyway, I did finish, but it was a cruiser all the way. Whatever, check that box and move on.
After work since the rain was holding off I grabbed my bike that I had left at work on Tuesday and rode home. Sometimes I really like riding at night! Especially when it's dry.
On the way home I paused on Capitol Hill for some time with friends and a Seattle Running Club board meeting. Hence my ride in the dark. Did I mention the buzz on the hill is awesome? I just love it. I had some food at Rancho Bravo Tacos for the first time, it's in the building that used to be a KFC and it is a tremendous value and quite good tasting too. Uber urban for sure.
