I went to my runnng class again tonight. A 20 minute run, probably about the same distance as last Thursday. But I hurt. From my ankles to the middle of my shins was cramping and stiff. So I stretched during and afterwards. I know it’s all due to building back up to a level of activity. So I just have to keep at it, building up strength.

My foot still hurts. I can’t decide if it’s strain or something else. Some days it feels better than others. In fact, this morning I thought “Wow, it’s really feeling better.” We’ll see how it feels tomorrow after tonight’s run.

Several people I know ran the Boston Marathon today. Despite weather conditions, they all did very well. Great job!
