I haven’t been able to ride for a few weeks. My left foot was strangely painful, and the cycling shoes made it far worse.
Today I sucked it up suited up, and headed out into the chilly (50F) morning. I put on an easy 21 miles. Didn’t set any speed records, and I didn’t want to push it too hard.
The result is good. No pain in the foot, and my hand was OK too (it is a mazing what 800 mg of ibuprofen can do…)
I may head out again tomorrow.
My shoes are going to be replaced though. They are 12 years old, and are thoroughly shagged. The problem is I have wide feet. 11.5 EEE to be precise, so I had to order up a pair of cycling shoes. I am sure that they will improve the situation as well.
Looking forward to heading out tomorrow. Good to be back in the saddle.
