I want to ride my bicycle…

I am finally able to start cycling a little- so last Friday I decided to take my bike for a spin to my local library book sale – about a mile away.  I figured that was a reasonable distance to try for my first bike ride back since hurting my heel – Its only about a mile and very flat.  So I headed over, locked up my bike and headed in to look at all the books.  I found 3  for $1 each that I had on my list of book I want to read which I will ultimately add to the huge pile of books that I hope to eventually read in my lifetime.  ANYWAY as I headed back over to my bike I pulled out my keys and tried to unlock the bike lock – didn’t work.  I stood next to my bike thinking, ‘OH SHIT.’

Hello From The Other Side…

So I have been a little quiet on the blog lately…if you have been reading this blog and/or watching my Youtube channel, you know I have been having problems with my heel/foot for a while and have had to rest it and wear one of those giant boots.  I found out I needed to keep wearing the boot all through April and the 1st week of May which was very disappointing, but it does still hurt, so I understand.  I want it to be fully healed before I start hiking/cycling so I don’t re-injure it and have to start all over.

30 Days of Biking – week 2

Unfortunately  my foot/heel is still painful so I had to come up with a backup plan QUICK to continue with 30 days of biking.  I didn’t want to do the same thing as the last video and just have other people riding around in place of me – so inspired by the fact that my mom dresses as the Easter Bunny every year and this picture I took of my of my nephew:

Marathon Training: UPDATE

Unfortunately my heel pain has become a constant problem – I am pretty sure I have plantar fasciitis so I have been doing various stretches, rolling it with a ball thingy, and got a splint to wear at night.  I know rest is the most important thing right now, but what does that mean for all the races I signed up for this spring?  It was suggested that I rest it for at LEAST 10 weeks – I don’t want it to become a chronic condition or get any worse.  I will most likely go to a doctor to see how long I need to rest my foot for, but I am super disappointed about this.  :/
