I had a nice easy run with Melanie yesterday morning — with no ankle pain! Yeah!

Of course, the various portions of my anatomy that I worked out in the weight room have been, shall we say, complaining. My problem is, I can’t really do a ‘light’ weight workout. I nearly always do the max I can for my reps (8-12, 3 sets), and sometimes I do drop sets to failure. That’s fine if I keep up with lifting, i.e. several times a week, because then that ouchy recovery smooths out, but to lift sporadically means (gee whiz) it’s like I’m starting from scratch each time.
