It seems there is a fair bit of injury doing the rounds, at least on the blogs I follow, and I am no exception. I currently have some bizarre and painful swelling on my right foot, just at the ball behind the big toe, which goes with rest but comes back with prodding and flexing of the toe. I have a feeling that it's a consequence of my attempts to increase my stride rate over the past couple of weeks and a subsequent hike in weekly mileage.
I would get it looked at but I can't afford a physio so that's out of the question. Should I go to the Doctor? Should I just rest? I really want to get out on the bike but it's blowing a gale and I'm reluctant - which is never a good sign.
So I think I'm gonna eat something and watch Mark Beaumont cycle through central America.
