See! I ran a 10-miler, and my feet only FELT like they were going to fall off. Actually it was a bit of tendonitis in my ankles. It was better with ice and rest.
I've been hitting the gym at least twice a week, three times during most weeks. I'm hoping that working on my leg strength in the gym will help with the tendonitis.
I'm becoming an indoor rowing enthusiast. No, really! I'm using the rower (erg) for my warmup and my cardio workout. It's a very enjoyable workout and my cardiovascular fitness is improving rapidly.
I registered on the Concept 2 website (www.concept2.com) and use the online logbook to record and rank my rowing workouts. I've performed a couple of 500m sprints and was happy with the results.

This latest trial was 3.2 seconds faster than my previous, and first, trial. I need to work on my pacing. I'm starting out too fast and hitting the wall with about 100m to go.
I'll keep working on it and I'm sure it will get better.
Okay, that's it for today.
