My Leg, My Leg, My Leg is on FIRE!
So during the last mile of my run yesterday, my left calf started to hurt. I finished the run and foam rolled pretty intensely, but last night the pain was still there. I knew my eight mile training run this morning was a bad idea, so I opted for 45 minutes on the elliptical and 15 on the stairstepper instead.
I was talking to one of the guys that works at my gym while I was stretching and he was giving me tips on how to get my calf back to normal. Among rest, ice, elevation, and compression, he suggested Biofreeze. I’ve never used the stuff before…it seemed really intense and kinda hokey to me. But he brought me a free wipe to try and I just put it on my leg.
And now my leg feels like it is ON FIRE. I mean I know that is the point, but it’s a totally strange sensation! I hope this helps, because it makes me nervous to skip training runs. But I know any running would just make it worse, and uninjured legs are my most prized possession right now.
- Have you ever used Biofreeze? Does it work?
This is what I was going to wear yesterday before I found out it was going to be a gross, cold day. But today the high is 60! I’m mixing patterns here, which is something I LOVE but is hard to pull off correctly. Do the stripes on the shirt work with this skirt?
I was soo ready for breakfast when I got to work today. The sunflower seed butter jar is getting low, which means two things:
Back to work! Job right now is compiling the press kits I’ve received fashion bloggers into a spread sheet to help out our social media team. If you have a favorite fashion blog, please pass the URL onto me so I can see if we might be able to work with them!
I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE MY BOYFRIEND THIS WEEKEND! Just had to get that out.
