Quite the day of fitness. I seem to do this every time I'm forced to take some time off due to injury or just when I'm really well rested... And today was the first day back at the Howe Street stairs. Good times start now.
Howe Street has got to the most popular flight of stairs in Seattle for fitness. It's a very rare occurrence that I show up - no matter what time of day or year - and there isn't at least one other person there doing the same thing as me. Suffering. It's pretty cool. Every year starting in November my good friend Jim Kodjababian and I hit these stairs for 11 weeks. That time is now.
At lunch I hopped on the Expresso exercise bike at the IMA. It really is the best indoor bike I have ever ridden. If only the saddles were not so damn uncomfortable. I had no intention of going hard today but then my 'ghost' from a previous effort passed me and I sped up. :( I ended up getting a PR on this course by about 30 seconds and it was tough.
After work I headed over to Breathe Hot Yoga. More good times. My body really appreciates this.
