Wednesday, Thursday rides

I rode for 1:15 yesterday, easy, and then 1:15 today, up as many local hills as I could find.  I’ve been annoyed at all the beautiful weather I’ve been missing since I can only ride in the early mornings before it warms up, but this morning temps were in the 50s when I left, and it felt great.  I was almost overheated in my arm and knee warmers.  Tomorrow will most likely be a day off; I’m not sure about Saturday because of the rain, and then Sunday is the last race in the series I’ve been riding in.  After that I get a weekend break before another race comes up.  I’m hoping for dry on Sunday but it’s not looking good right now.

My foot is improving with the inserts I got from the podiatrist, but it’s not quite back to normal yet.  I keep thinking maybe just one more week, and it turns into another and another.  It’s unbelievably slow.

    Did you stop running because of the foot? Was it plantar fasciatis (sp)?

    That is why I stopped running, but I’m hoping to pick it up again soon — maybe in a week or so (although that’s what I keep saying …). It isn’t plantar fasciatis; as far as I can tell it’s something without a name — pain on the top of my foot caused by overuse. The pain is very minimal now, but I don’t want to injure it again, so I’m frightened to start running. I’m trying to wait until it’s 100% better.
