Wow, that is some deep stuff on Begin to Dig and, a nice writeup from Steven on tendonitis and recovery from it. Very useful.
Now, about my continuing fitness problem/lunacy: Once I actually took time to pay attention to what was going on with the tenderness, I began to massage the area. Not too deeply, just enough to move the tendon about. That was last night. Now the discomfort is no longer noticeable, even with a fairly strong pressure point massage.
I never got around to trying heat. Thanks for the help guys....
