Today was supposed to be my last long run before the race next week, 10-11 miles. Since I decided last week to let my foot rest and heal there was no running. But, I did swim one mile at the Y and rode my bike for 20 miles. I believe I had a comparable cardio workout. I do not think missing the run will really negatively affect my race next week. I just hope the foot heals enough that I won't be hobbling for most of 26 miles. The bike ride was not without incident as I took a nasty spill right behind the convention center on the riverwalk as I crossed a railroad track. Scraped up my left elbow, shoulder and hip. They are going to be sore in the morning.
