After a long stay in Georgia I'm back in Texas. I didn't have much time to run there so I lost some ground.

Just as an update my foot is still about the same. It's very sore to walk barefooted but with a good shoe it's just uncomfortable. After a run it's sore for a while but tolerable. The toe is just stiff and sits there and doesn't do much. The pain is really on the bottom of my foot.

Today was a better day to run than it's been in a while but the humidity still made it feel hot and I sweated a ton. The last miles were tiring because of the effort you can see by my HR. I'm ready for the 7's to be easy and the 6's to the hard and not 8's.

Rode with a new friend Cody, and his friend this morning. They are "real" cyclist and compete regularly. I am definitly not in condition to ride with them. I slowed them up quite a bit but made the 33 miles in a decent time. I was tired afterwords. I am also very uncomfortable riding with others, especially at high rates of speed.
