A Runner on E-motion Rollers

Last week I got in my new E-Motion Rollers from Inside Ride. Needless to say, there is a learning curve for riding rollers, and while I haven't "danced" on the pedals yet like the guy in this video, I am slowing getting the hang of it (it took me about 10 minutes before I got the nerve to remove my hand from the wall!).

My heel continues to show improvement, and all of my running is basically now pain free (although I can still feel something there walking around during the day after sitting). I switched back over to Powerstep Inserts- I think overall they offer more protection than Heel Seats, (I will use those when I start doing easy strides). For now I am jogging an average of 40-45 minutes in the morning, swimming 1000 meters or so after work (that's when I get my anaerobic work), then I hop on the rollers for 20 minutes when I get home. After that I take Sumo, who has been waiting patiently, out for another 20 minute mile jog. "Mini" workouts.

I'll continue this progression and see how my foot responds to a gradual increase in distace before I set a long term goal.
