Nice long bike ride from Palmetto to the West Palm Inlet and back today. I tried to brick a run after the ride, but the foot pain returned immediately so I called it a day.
The big news this week is, I have ridden my bike 3 days in a row. Actually, I have ridden both of my bikes (my fixie and my tri-bike). My recent over-training induced foot injury has been the catalyst but I hope it is not the only reason why I am riding. I used to love cycling. I rode a lot and was a strong rider. Along the way, I lost interest and it is sad. My fastest days as a runner also included very heavy bike training. I don't think that my foot injury is serious and I anticipate being back at a heavy running schedule again in a few days. It is likely however, that if I included bicycling into my regimen, I probably would not have gotten injured at all. Not only that, I still fantasize about a return to triathlon races.
Ran long and felt great for the first 10 miles. The heat did me in and by mile 12 I was slowing down; walked home from mil 12.34. I don't know what the answer is. It is SoFla summer and I suppose I need to get out earlier...

Nice ride up to the inlet. I rode well with some longer intervals on the way up and then cruised home. The run that I attempted afterwords was cut immediately as the foot pain was there and I played it safe.

Trail run on the levee. I had a really sore running foot tonigt. The pain is on the bottom of my right foot near the ball where my foot strikes. It hurt so bad that I took my shoe off at mile 3 thinking that there was a rock in my shoe.
