RE: Another progress report
Den,

Yes, I think you're giving me good advice. I'm being sure to remain active every day. I take short walks about 5-10 times per day even on off days, also some stretching, along with just daily living.

But another thought on the subject of stiffness is this: Muscles and tendons can both repair themselves, but tendons require more calendar time and also more "quiet" time for the intricate repair work to be done.

Sometimes when I read this large LetsRun thread I see people with long term sports hernia problems who are so addicted to exercise they don't know how to let their body have time to fix what is fundamentally a repetetive stress injury.

Repetetive stress injuries like tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis are cured not be exercise, but by abstaining from exercise or drastically reducing exercise.

I'm still puzzled by all that.
