    Comeback 2022 - weeks 25-26

    Hmm, is biking easier? It could be. Yes, you get to roll down hills or coast to take a break. There is one effort I can use to compare, Mt. Washington. I am no speedster at either running or riding. I ran Mt. Washington 4 times, and rode it once in the official road races. All my times are around the same, 2 hours(ish). All 5 trips up were hard, the ride was the hardest physical event I've ever done. I don't think I'll ever do it again. The runs were hard, but I'll happily do it again, once Covid settles down.

    Comeback 2022 - week 23

    I've been cycling more than running for about 10 years. That's the nature of cycling. You never know who's going to crush you. I'm a much stronger rider than my wife, but one year she was training a lot, we went out for a ride, she killed me. I upgraded my ride last January. Bikes are still really hard to find. This superbike is my dream bike, I cannot believe how lucky I got they had it in stock. It's my size, and a custom color you need to order - it was sitting there on a pedestal, I needed to buy it. https://ctreeves.smugmug.com/Bike/Madone/ Sorry to keep hearing you're not able to get back to running.
  5. Congrats! Did you see Tommy Rivers?

    Sounds very frustrating.

    That sounds like a good idea.

    Comeback 2022 - week 9

    Celiac disease?
  9. Like @CompulsiveRunner suggested, I am still working on tendinitis in my left foot. No running in the last few months. I just got back to riding (indoors it's -1 today) and it has helped lift my spirits. I had been working with a PT for a couple of months, but for unrelated reasons, I needed to stop. It took me a while, but I progressed to where he allowed me to push through the pain.

    Nothing yet.

    While I've never run at your level, I feel your pain. A few months ago I ran through a little zing I felt. Seemed silly not too, it truly was just one quick little zing. Then that turned into a brief pain in my heel, again ran through it. That progressed into the first few minutes were a little painful, but went away. You guessed it, I foolishly kept this up to the point the whole run was either uncomfortable or painful. I haven't been able to run in at least a couple of months, and riding is pretty much out too. Been in PT for about 4 or 5 weeks. Typing this with my boot on. Not a real boot, more of a sleeping boot. It's too big to sleep with so I have a Strassburg sock for sleeping, and twice a day exercises. Hopefully will be back to running / riding in a few more weeks or months. No idea what the actual diagnosis is. Several spots with tendinitis, possibly plantar fasciitis too. This too shall pass.

    Warning - treadmill related

    New plan. The Runner's World was awful. I love my treadmill for the iFit. Monday I did a run, first in a series, for becoming competitive in a 5k. Lots of warnings for the first 10 minutes that this is not for beginners. While I'm not fast, I think I qualify as above a beginner. It's a 7 week series. Run 1 was in a Costa Rican jungle. This is much more what I had in mind, still hard, but beautiful scenery.
