My New BFF

Okay, I know that I'm impatient when it comes to my injuries, so my newest best friend is my heating pad.

We go to work together, we watch television together and we even started sleeping together.

I can still run without any discomfort on the track to eliminate some of the shock to my body but I don't want to hamper the healing process.

I'm using my Ben-Gay stick-on pads and they seem to really help. I've even gone into the medicine cabinet and found some old meds, just in case.

Fortunately we've had crappy weather in the high-five state, so I don't feel as though I'm missing a lot.

I hope to be back(pun intended) before the weekend group run. Until then, I'll be the guy that smells like your Granddad.....

Hey, you kids, get off my grass.....

I don't even think I own a heating pad. Of course, I also don't remember when saber toothed tigers roamed the eart, so you know...

"earth" -- wow, note to self: don't make fun of others if you can't type the insult correctly!

Heating pad and Ben Gay?!? Good God Ken! What's next? ;-)

My ortho doc threatened me to never use a heating pad. Ice all the way baby! Ice and Traumeel are the bomb.

Hope you get feeling better

Ice one post, heating pad the next. I can see this relationship runs hot and cold. Be careful with old meds since their chemistry can change past expiration dates and produce unwelcomed side effects, not to mention become ineffective.

I know I'm late with the comments...but you've got to get some BioFreeze. You just have to. Do it. Right now. LOL.

Seriously...way better than any ben-gay, tiger balm, etc.
