Because she was correct about what was up with me, I had a different set of stretches to do for recovery than what I had otherwise thought I needed.

Also, for me, I guess I was lucky, this whole thing came from trying to mix running with cycling; I never had to stop riding, just give up the running, and that is not a loss for me...

+1 on the above comments.

I find a Naprosyn, Aleve, to be more effective than Ibuprofen, when a little senioritis sets in.
