Re: Good cardio recommendations for someone with foot proble

Thanks everyone! I'll try everything but the rowing machine...I used to row in an actual boat and so the machine is too horrible to contemplate again since I know how good the real thing is. :)

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Thank you, that all makes good sense.

Not that we've had any real winter weather yet--it's been amazingly nice, in fact. But apparently the snow will finally come this weekend...

Good cardio recommendations for someone with foot problems?

Hi everyone, So I enjoy running and cycling and lifting weights (the last in a pretty minor way--only once or twice a week). I've recently been having problems with one foot; got new orthotics and it's getting worse. The podiatrist told me to give myself 6 weeks to adjust to the new inserts before c...

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Yep, Dreamqueen, that was probably me at FRESH. I'm often at the Bloor/Spadina location. I used to cycle competitively (road/TTs/crits & cyclocross) and still cycle all year round. Good luck with your feet! Thanks! I have another question, Timetide, for you... You cycle all year--how do you dea...

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Vegantri and Timetide--both excellent suggestions, thank you!

I went 20 km this morning in heavier socks and heavier, looser shoes. I was alright for longer but still got cold so will go shopping asap.

Timetide: I am also in TO and I think I've seen you at Fresh a few times. :) Small world.

Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Hi everyone, I joined a while ago but have posted almost nothing...I lurk a lot and get inspiration though! Today, I have a problem I hope all the outdoor cyclists can help me with. My plan is to continue cycling outdoors for as long as possible. I go between 26-30 km (16-18.5 mi) these days but cou...

Re: Does anyone know how to make sushi rolls without rice?

I sometimes just use tonnes of veggies and don't worry about a grain. So: julienned cucumber, carrot, zucchini, sprouts, avocado, with some shiro miso spread lightly over the nori, which is used to roll up the veggies like regular sushi.
