Went to the gym today for a shakeout run as I have been pretty sedentary these last couple of days. It felt super! I had just planned on cruising along but was feeling so good that I sped up the pace toward the end.
Then I drove my van to the shop for service and biked home.
Did I mention it was below 30 degrees? Oh. My. God. My fingers froze freaking off. I have bad circulation in my extremities anyway and if I don't put warm hands into warm gloves from the start I am toast. That was the case today, the case of Martin being toast.
I guess I had my gloves off too long and was showing the service technician around my vehicle for too long because when I pulled my gloves on and started riding I was already chilled. When I got home all I could do was run my hands under warm water and cry as they warmed up. I hate that.
At noon I went to FootWorks PT for my first ever gait and shoe analysis. More about that later.
