Cruel To Be Kind

The other day at sports rehab, Monday to be exact, I had mentioned that my left calf was sore, perhaps from my 16 mile run on Saturday. B worked on my calf and mentioned how tight it was. It hurt like all get out when he worked on it, but that's usually the case. I had to go to that warm, sandy beach in my mind, plus do some deep breathing.

Fast forward to now...

I showed B my calf today and he said something like "Did I do that?" "Don't take pictures!" To which I replied "I am sooooo taking a picture!"

There it is.

Yep. Nice and bruised.

Does it still hurt? Yes.

Am I upset? No. I bruise quite easily. I could have done that all by myself, for free. There is a method to the madness, but I wish it didn't have to hurt.

Sunday's song:
Wide Open Spaces - Dixie Chicks - Katiefeldmom

Ouch! I hope it was worth the bruise. I love your song title titles (does that make sense?). Very creative!

Hope the calf feels better!

i bruise easily too, and failed to take a pic after my last session, but I do go back for some more ART tonight. :) hope the calf is feeling better!

I'm not sure who sings "Cruel to be Kind" but I know it's in the movie Ten Things I Hate About You.

Ouch on your calf. Did he do it with a foam roller?

Usually, the temporary pain is worth it. I guess he just went a little too hard. I title all of my blogposts with song titles. I got the idea from someone else and it just kind of stuck with me.

I probably wouldn't of taken a picture, but when B jokingly told me not to take a picture, I decided to jokingly do so... The calf IS feeling much better. :)

No, not the foam roller, his thumbs, but I did use a foam roller on my hip, which isn't bruised. Hmmmm. ;)

Ouch! Hope it stops hurting soon!
