ACK! I did a great job with riding and hiking last week only to have injured my ankle and foot BADLY. I seem to have torn some tendons or something. Tarsal Tunnel Syndrom or tendonitis or plantar facitiis or something miserable- Oh so painful. My bike shoes weren't adjusted properly and were causing numbness in my feet but I ignored. I pushed TOO hard last week too. Now I am afraid I can't even walk :( This is a major disappointment- I need walking and exercise more than ever right now...... There's so much going on right now... And I keep gaining weight and eating badly.
Bad cycle. BAD.. And I don't mean my bike! LOL

MORAL OF THE STORY: DON'T overdue it!! Condition your muscles and ease into excercising when you've been on a break. And always adjust your bike shoes APPROPRIATELY! Cheap is not always better

    Hey there! It's been forever since we chatted! Sorry to hear you overdid it! This reminder does come at a good time for me... I am coming off a break and need to remember I can't pick up where I left off!
