Total Fitness Tuesday! Or something like that...
Got in a reasonable Howe Street stair session, rode to work and then went on the Fleet Feet Sports Seattle Tuesday night run. Today I kind of gassed coming back up the hill, perhaps it was the stairs?
On the upside I got try a pair of new shoes today, the Brooks Transcend. The shoe felt great but my right calk got tweaked on the run for some reason.
Super weather all day long. But that and my new shoes didn't make the stairs any easier. :( Still, it's pretty fun to have it be daylight right from the start! Total contrast to the winter workout sessions.
At the Tuesday run it felt to me like we started out a tad fast but someone else said it felt pretty easy. I guess that should be a sign things are not going so well. :) I was with the front group until we hit the gravel path in the Arboretum and then they started to pull away. I managed to drop the guys I was with on the hill but it was hard and for the first time in weeks I had to walk for a bit at the top of the dirt trail. Oops. I also was not able to close fast and just kind of maintained my pace. Joe Creighton and Brett ran me down with about .25 miles to go.
As bad as I felt, my time was only about 1:30 slower than a really good time for me on this run.
I have taken it easy for several days, I'm sure that is not helping my fitness.
