CP_NDN_Half_Marathon001_12582806_ver1.0_640_480[1]I just got through 4 very stressful days related to my duties as the race timer for the local half marathon.  I encountered some problems with the event timing that lead to pretty incredible amounts of work to address. This work meant I had absolutely no time or desire for ancillary exercise. It felt good to get back to the gym today to start burning through the truck load of stress that I have been feeling.

The stupid twist injury I suffered last week stepping out of a gym machine has had some lasting effects.  The right knee is still too sore to run on and I could feel the inflammation during the recoil portion of every stroke on the rower.  My rowing numbers have not been been very good recently, instead of a slow improvement the numbers have been edging downward.  I still am doing around 30 strokes a minute but my 500m pace has slowed to between 2:20 and 2:25.
