Tried a 3 mile run today. The foot seems a little better but I'm afraid if I run too much on it it will just get worse.

Legs were a little tired after yesterday's long bike ride.

Cut my bike ride a little shorter today and a little slower.

16.5 Miles @ 17.4 mph. I did hit 42 mph on one long downhill just for fun!

13.5 Miles @ 18.5 mph in the evening.

4 Miles @ 7:35 Pace.

It's hard to believe I was running a faster pace for 20 miles just a few weeks ago. :-(

Did some research and found another way to tape my toe using kinesio tape. It seems to help. My foot did not seem any worse after this run. so I'm hoping to get two 3-4 miles runs in next week.

I've been in a little pain the last few days after suffering another cycling accident. No broken bones this time but I destroyed my bike, helmet and shoes. Here's a picture of the cuts and scrapes that aren't covered up by clothing. 

Isaiah 52:14-15

14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him—
    his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
    and his form marred beyond human likeness—
15 so he will sprinkle many nations,
    and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
    and what they have not heard, they will understand.
