Well, I've done it. I've gone and gotten bike shoes. They arrived yesterday and last night I put my pedals on my bike and the cleats on the shoes. I'll have to work on the placement of the cleats but it's official. I have bike shoes.
My plan was to ride this morning but I woke up and my calves are so incredibly sore I decided a day of rest was in order.
My eye is much better this morning. I did scratch it and the offending item was still in there continuing to scratch away. The Dr. removed it and by yesterday afternoon was feeling much, much better. Because of the scratch though, I had to wear my glasses not my contacts. If you wear contacts you know how lazy your eyes get. When I wear my glasses for any extended period my eyes get really tired. So by 8 last night my eyes were exhausted. I was in bed by 9 and then sleeping in this morning, I feel pretty darn good. I'm going to try my contacts today and see how they feel. I'll bring my glasses in case they start to bother me.
I probably should feed the dogs and go get ready for work. Just because I'm not training doesn't mean I can sit around all morning.
