cardio | stretching | bike commute

Hit the gym again for some stretching after a brief light cardio warm-up and it felt just slightly better than yesterday. At least I am out and about.

I forgot to mention it yesterday but today is day two in real shoes! And by 'real' I mean slip-on Vans. My feet are still a mess and still somewhat swollen, my body does handle long runs well it seems.

My left knee does feel like it is getting any better. I felt it on the elliptical trainer and I can feel it on the bike. It's not outright/sharp pain but my IT band is irritated for sure. Otherwise on the bike my quads felt like they are recovering which is nice. I can get in and out of the saddle without wincing.

After doing essentially nothing for the last four days except eating my weight is now over what it was when I started Cascade Crest 100. Time to reign it in.
