or at least it feels that way. I ran a mile the other night on a treadmill - just enough to get warm. Still some soreness there, but nothing worse than I've dealt with already.
In the meantime, I've spent a lot of time swimming. And cycling. I managed to talk my wife (thanks dear!) into not complaining too loudly about a new bike (actually, a bike, period, since I didn't have one until now). It's a great workout and is filling in nicely as far as cardio is concerned.
