Icy Hot = My Hero?

by - Thursday, June 28, 2007

Well today was another morning without a run. Sadness. But last night I took a trip to CVS for some ibuprofen and some Icy Hot. (Icy Hot came highly recommended from a friend of mine who plays baseball and has to use it after most of his games). But after hearing all about the girl who died for ODing on Icy Hot and various other things, I decided I didn't want to mix the ibuprofen with the Icy Hot. I'm sure it would have been fine, but really I'm a little paranoid sometimes.

So anyway, after icing the calf down and having no luck really, I decided it was time for some Icy Hot. The box says the patches work for up to 8 hours...and I didn't put it on til 9:30 so I figured I'd sleep with it on and it'd be fine. I woke up at 6ish this morning, pulled off the Icy Hot and was surprised at how much my leg didn't hurt. I mean it's still sore, but definitely not as bad as before. I'm still walking gingerly on it, but things are feeling better.

I have to teach kickboxing at the gym tonight, which will be interesting indeed. Basically it's going to consist of me standing there doing the punches and then just talking them through the kicks. I don't have high hopes for the success of the class. I tried to find a sub but no luck.

Not being able to work out is driving me up a wallllllllllll.
