I'm training for an event this Fall called El Tour de Tucson, it's a cycling event and my plan is to do the 60 mile course (there is also a 30 mile course and a 100 mile course). I had my 1st practice this past Saturday.

Friday night I tried out my new bike (on loan from a great non-profit called Uphill Into the Wind) and thought, Hey - I'll walk the dog at the same time! Which was so dumb as I didn't get 15 feet before crashing into a bush and falling down with my bike on top of me.

I thought I was fine, but I hurt my foot. I iced it and still went for my 1st training ride Saturday a.m. where I rode about 8-9 miles. My foot didn't hurt while I was on the bike, only when I was walking. Today however, my foot still hurts and felt worse than it did over the weekend, so I went to Urgent Care to get it checked out.

I have a spiral fracture of my metatarsal and need to see an orthopedist. They put a splint on my foot, gave me crutches, and said I'd need to see an orthopedist and get a cast.

So yay. I'm hoping I can still cycle, even with a cast. After all, that didn't hurt. Ugh! This sucks.
