Yesterday’s Workout

I haven’t done anything since the Drumstick Dash on Thanksgiving until last night. I went to the gym and rode the bike for 20 minutes (6.43 miles). Kind of a puny workout but I needed to do something. It was good timing for a break since we were traveling around for the holiday. My foot feels good walking around now, but I haven’t tried running or anything on it.
