I'm trying to do the right thing by taking it easy, the intensity of the Tuesday Hammer would have brought short term pleasure, but I fear it'd knock me down for what looks to be a beautiful long weekend on the horizon. Fortunately as I commuted home yesterday I saw Tyler running on the paths, so I rode next to him for 20 minutes.
I feel a little better today, but not perfect. I'll try to do some leg strength drills on the way home, slow RPM and low heart rate but working the muscles... hopefully that can bridge the gap enough to let me feel like I got some exercise (so I can sleep at night), without sending me further down the spiral.
Chilling out for a day or two is the right thing to do, but that doesn't mean it's fun!
