Foot falling asleep
I've been getting back into riding lately -- about three months in. I'm working up to longer and longer rides but one thing that's slowing me down is that about 35-40 minutes into my ride, my right foot near my toes starts to fall asleep. I don't think it's my shoes. I've had this problem in the past during other workouts, even in my good sneakers and I just got a new pair of Sidi Genius-5's that fit perfectly. There's plenty of room for my feet and toes to wiggle when I need to.
I'm using Speedplay Zero clips/cleats, an upgrade from some Wellgo's I was using. They feel good and I've been very comfortable riding on them -- I can't believe they're the problem.
I'm going to talk to my doctor about it but I'm wondering if anyone here has had this problem and what you did to try to fix it? It's more annoying than anything else but on long rides, it's can get to be painful. My solution so far has been to stop and get off to walk around a bit. That seems to alleviate the problem but only temporarily. I'm be grateful for anyone who could offer any advice or suggestions. Thanks
