I have Saturday’s downfall (twisted ankle during a run) to thank for the foot and ankle pain I’m feeling today. It’s on my “good” side, which is probably a blessing but is depressing nonetheless.
Fortunately, I am able to manage the flats without a whole lot of complaint. So after peeling off my sock to check for bruising I changed directions and pushed hard on the flats instead.
I also had to some good company on today’s ride which was another thing to be thankful for. Although I think we were both disappointed that we couldn’t enjoy the beauty that seems to be prevalent in the hills and almost non-existant in the flats, it was still a good ride.
