Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

After a long recovery, it felt like it was time to get back on the bike.
I’ve been dealing with foot pain for nearly two months from a bout of
plantar fasciitis, and possibly a “self-diagnosed” stress fracture, in my left foot.
Over-use. Over-exertion. Over. Over. Over… and that’s me. So it’s no surprise, really!

So I’ve been very careful with, and stayed off it as much as possible, and now
I feel like I might be ready to let “Spring Training” begin! Especially with my annual
goal of riding every month year-round – I had to squeeze it in today, the last day of March!
And this morning’s sunrise was a great kick-of treat!

It’s been far too long. And it felt great to be back in the saddle again.
Still cold. And a little tougher than I remember… but that’s to be expected.
Everything felt good as I was pedaling so I’m cautiously encouraged.
And hoping that everything feels good even later this afternoon & evening?!

I love your photos, I can relate also to a hiatus because of physical issues.
Thanks for the sentiment about getting back in the game. Susan
