I think i am unfit

I wanted to blame my shoes, according to the manufacturer, I have exceeded the run by date by over 90km so they are prone to cause injuries. The strange thing is they feel so comfortable now than at the beginning. It’s like that saying of the old broom knowing all the corners or something of that sort. I will take a short break from my running and ride more for a while till this pain goes away and in the meantime do some butt exercises.

That’s all for now. No braining today.

    I was with you right up until “butt exercises.”

    Now I’m wondering wth are butt exercises? I worked out a bit when I was younger, still do occaisionally, but have never done butt exercises. I guess I just supposed that whatever sort of excercising I did, the butt just followed along ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ve only ever used mine for sitting really, didn’t consider any excercises for that.

    So… what happened to your foot/feet?

    You strike me a a bit of a hammerhead (that’s a compliment), so you are probably just over-training. Good luck. I recognize the strategy: “Ouch, that hurts bad enough to make me stop hurting it. Let me see if I can make something else hurt instead.”
    By the way, do you run with a heel strike or forefoot strike?

      I think you are right. Though luckily for cycling, unless I fall, I hardly suffer any injuries.
      I think mid foot strike. Coz my shoes are neutral, iirc

    Good for you! Your fitness now exceeds the lifespan of your shoes! That should make you feel very proud and durable! Naked hugs! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Over training is an issue!

    Take care of yourself. Do some more 130 mile rides!

    Myself, I am thrilled that the raised seat seems to be curing my knee problems. i was fearing surgery ahead!


    • makagutu says:

      I did a 90 miler yesterday

        Damn! That is insane.

        Most of my rides are in the 40-60 range, but I tend to do two or three days in a row.

        There is now enough daylight in the evening I will do 20-30 after work tonight. There is lovely countryside five miles from my office that if you time it right to avoid the commute rush,, Suisun Valley is just a lovely place to ride. There is a quality of light in the evening that affects even this hard bitten cynic! ๐Ÿ™‚

          I now have a slightly improved cell phone camera-and more storage space! After being told it would cost $300 to replace the shattered screen alone on my old iPhone, I just walked next door and splurged. TMobile makes it so easy! ๐Ÿ™‚ In my defense, I have no television and no desktop computer, so my cell phone is EVERYTHING.


        • makagutu says:

          If the weather is good, I will do a 40mile ride tomorrow afternoon.
          I like the 80-200 mile range. It takes endurance to do that
