Bryonman: "When it hurts you stop. Don't be a hero."

So yeah, the foot thing is minor and is easily overcome ... if I just leave it alone and let it "heel" [it's actually my left foot].

I had a good training weekend. My bike workout on Saturday was exceptional. It was the strongest I have felt on the time trial bike. I do miss my road bike. I can't wait to get it back. I took Sunday off to rest and we looked at 8 or 9 houses.

Guess what? We have an accepted offer on a home. It is just a half a mile from the Phoenix mountain preserve so we will have great trail access if the deal goes to completion. After we take posession and move some things in I will post some photos. It is going to be nice to own again ... even though that comes with a fair amount of headache as well.

We did a hill workout in spin class last night and followed that workout up with an hour of yoga. Yoga helps me. I feel better today and I am going to attribute that to the stretching and breathing in yoga.

This morning I was at the gym at Oh Dark 15 for a swim workout. I wanted to swim for an hour straight through. I ended up swimming for 75 minutes and covered 3250 meters. That is my longest swim to date. I swam all of it in a lower heart rate zone and definitely could have done some more.

Then I got on the ol treadmill thinking that the foot would be ready. The first mile went well because I went so slow. I moved up to 7 or 8 mph and the dull pain came back ... not on every stride but often enough to be annoying. I pulled the plug. It is frustrating. I have time. I am going to start with the source and assume that either my insoles are worn out or my arches are collapsing and I need more support. It is what it is. I will probably replace my run workouts with ab work and yoga.
