Just back from my first stab at Nordic Walking. 7.1 miles in 2:17 ....... I never realized how much extra bit of work using those poles are :shock: . I concentrated on keeping a steady, easy pace.

Although it does sound like it may be an achilles issue I wouldn't jump to the conclusion it's only due to tight calves. Both could be symptoms of another issue. I've spent the last 9 months battling first achilles & now knee issues. Countless sessions of tortorous deep tissue massage on my calv...

Cheryl, what about skating? I know you still need to bend your knees, but maybe not so much on the sore one?

I've just spent the last hour surfing the net looking for non-impact cardio exercises - besides water running which isn't an option for me there's not much out there if you can't bend your knee :? Can you swim? If you can, use a pull buoy and that eliminates the legs. I can swim - just don't have a...

I love to travel too - running has literally taken me all over the world. Part of it is the feeling of accomplishment in achiving a goal - but a huge part of it is the people.
