Cycling with sesamoiditis
I hope warm weather, sunshine and flowers are headed your way soon!
I went to physical therapy yesterday and told them I started riding outside but didn’t think it did my feet any good. These dang sesamoid bones are stubborn little punks. My PT recommended I try moving the cleats back on my cycling shoes and taped me up to try riding again. Enter Frankenstein cyclist:
Unfortunately that didn’t work. By mile 5 (the halfway point) my foot felt like a pokey ball sticker was stuck inside. This injury is like a nagging wife that won’t shut up.
It’s been over a month dealing with this. Some days I feel like I’m on the mend and others feel like I took a giant step back.
Oh well at least the views were incredible.
I absolutely love living in an active community!! It’s something I appreciate every single day.
I have a few more things to try out before giving up on cycling like adding metatarsal pads to my shoes, trying dancers pads, looking into new shoes or if I get really grumpy just cutting a dang hole in the insert to take the pressure off. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions, I’m all ears.
In other, more happy news, Pineapple rocks and should totally become a mandatory post ride treat! I just need to remember to buy it more often.
I told Mike I have have killer pineapple picking skillz. He just rolled his eyes and looked at me in disgust. He obviously has no idea he married a genius and prolly wishes I looked at him like I do pineapple. Or not.
Here are some other random pics I snapped this week. It’s sort of my personal apology for the beauty face app not doing it’s job in the above pic.
Now you can’t say you’ve never seen a California sunset. 🙂
Any suggestions for sesamoiditis?
