Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Solid workouts by many over the weekend. Love seeing those bike rides get longer and longer. A friendly reminder to be extra diligent about cars this time of year. Drivers aren't exactly used to seeing cyclists on the roads, so their instincts aren't exactly in your favor. I say this because accidents happen this time of year a little too regularly. A friend from my old Tri club went down. Be careful.
Injury Update: After Friday, Saturday and Sunday as forced rest, where I did only enough to keep the streak alive, my toe has been responding. Sunday especially was a big day. I've been icing and resting since then, and on Sunday, even out in the yard doing yard work, I felt not a thing. The area is still tender, but the acute pain is gone. And by Sunday, while out in the yard (tried to stay out of the yard but it wasn't possible), I started forgetting about it being injured. Couple times I found myself walking on it normally. Overnight foot felt very good. All of which is a good sign, so much that I think Boston will not only happen but I might be able to race also.
Saturday: 2 mile walk-into-gentle jog.
Sunday: 2 mile walk-into-gentle jog.
Monday: 3 miles easy but strong pace (strong pace because, well, I'm rested) after allowing myself a full stride. Toe felt good. I even tried to toe-off normally rather than plodding.
Great day, gang!
