Since we have 30mph winds today I set up the trainer and spent 55 minutes on it, just 15 miles. I was going to ride further, but stopped because of some pain in the bottom of my left foot, right over the cleat. From the start of my serious riding, my toes always got slightly numb, but it didn't bother me very much. The past couple of months have been a lot worse, though, and I don't know why. Nothing has changed. Same shoes, pedals, cleats. A few weeks ago I moved the cleats back a couple of millimeters, but that didn't help. It can take as much as 45 minutes after a 2 hour ride for my toes and the bottoms of my feet to feel normal again. Today was the first time there was any pain while I was pedaling, and rather than risk any sort of injury that would keep me from riding, I stopped. So, does anyone have any suggestions? A cure maybe? I am not giving up my bike.
