Something is wrong with the positioning of the cleat on my cycling shoes. Ever since I first got them I'd get a deep achy pain in the lateral aspect of my right foot. Since I haven't really ridden very far or on consecutive days it was something I was willing to live with for now. But, having ridden two days in a row, the outside of my foot now hurts almost like a bruise. I'm thinking my toes are positioned inward too much and I'm putting pressure on the outside of my foot as I try to point them more outward as I pedal. But, what do I know? I'm too lazy to drag my whole bike back to the LBS to get it professionally looked at, so I may just fiddle with it myself tomorrow. Of course, the whole bike was set-up by a supposed bike-fit guru and I'm reluctant to go and tweak things he did.

Don't worry, Rabbits' Guy...Quick post to report that I was a Smart Runner today and did not run. I iced, stretched, and rolled but refrained from running. Instead, I rode my bike for the same amount of time I figured I would have been out running. But all of this was not without great mental difficulty. I've only taken one day off and am internally going crazy. I am going to have to deal with this one day at a time.
