I know exactly why I am in this predicament. If I where good about stretching my calves and hamstrings, I sincerely believe I would never have developed this foot problem. Stretching just takes so much time and effort. And it's boring. It's as tedious as cutting the grass. Still, if I had stuck with it I am sure I would not be suffering like this and would be able to run more than two miles at a time.
So where am I going with this; isn't it obvious? I'm buying a self propelled mower so that my wife can cut the grass. I'm nothing if not thoughtful.
