Very early start to cycle to the podiatrist. The last time I had to get Mr A to give me a lift as the weather was so awful. Much better today - sort of misty sunshine most of the day. The foot has been getting gradually a bit better, although I have periods of pain most days when I'm really hobbling. It's curious. I'm going to get some new orthotics. They may make a difference. Cycling, as usual, was fine, and I also discovered a slightly shorter route on the way home, which took 25 minutes instead of 37 minutes (the difference being partly accounted for by there being less uphill on the way home).
I spent the rest of the day reading the book I got out of the library the other day. As academics, we spend far too little time reading properly.
