Day 37 Rt 66 Challenge: Why Didn't I Think of That!?
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
This morning after checking my email, I noticed that one of my Sparkfriends commented on my last blog. Over the last few blogs, I have talked about the shin pain that I have been having and how it has kept me from running. This person gave me the suggestion to use a foam roller on my calf muscle since a tight calf could be the cause of my pain. OMG! Why had I not thought of that! I immediately pulled out my foam roller and went to town on my calf muscle. OH WOW it hurt! Not the hurt of an injury but the hurt of a tight muscle being massaged out that makes you say “it hurts but it feels good.” I had actually started having slight pain again in my shin last night and put off running today because of it. After using the foam roller, my shin feels a million times better. I plan on using it again tonight to work on it some more. What I do not understand is why I did not think of it? How did I overlook that? I have that silly thing for a reason but for some reason it did not dawn on me to use it in this instance. I am SO thankful to JULISKA09 for the suggestion!
