Im new to this forum. I was a long distance runner for about 4 years...running 7 miles a day plus. I was in the middle of Marathon training this year ,and I got plantaer fasiitis ,and an accute case of tendonitous in my ankle (or what used to look like an ankle). Its been 2 months of therypy ,and I still cant put a shoe on cause my skin is so senstive from the swelling.
Anyway I decieded to take up biking. I havent ridden a bike since I was a kid ,and Im 52 now. It looks like fun ,but I want to do it for fitness. I dont even know how to begin ,or how does it compare to running. Do you get that same high??? I still need to buy a bike. The reason I got injured was because I never stretched ,and became to obsessed with how many miles I could run. I ignored the symptoms ,and ran through the pain. Are there any sites to help you get started with out injury??
Sorry so many questions ~ Suzie
