…you actually shock a massage therapist to the point where they exclaim, “OMG!!!!” accidentally during your treatment.
Wednesday night is my big work out night. I pay extra for a class called TRX plus and I still go to Dance Mania before. I’ve been doing this for a while.
TRX Plus is like TRX, but with other circuit training items mixed in (kettle bell, medicine ball, bosu, etc.).
We were using gliding discs and something didn’t feel right and I stopped the exercise. I think I pulled too much with my back instead of my abs.
I woke up yesterday morning stiff with a bit of lower back and hip pain. Not as much as sent me to physical therapy in the past, but enough that I knew it was time for some pain meds, ice, and rest.
I decided to get a sports massage to see if I could help the healing process along. I called over to the place that I go and told them the issue and they recommended someone who was studying to become a PT.
I had to laugh because she was in shock on how tight and spasm’ing things were in my hips and glutes. This is one time where a high pain tolerance is a gift and a curse because it might have been developing for a while and I didn’t feel it coming. When she found the culprit muscle that starts it on on the front of my right hip, that is when the “Oh my god!!!!” came out accidentally. I actually laughed out loud when she did it. It’s not very often you shock a massage therapist.
I’m quite sore and feeling a little bruised today, but in a good way. I expected what I’m feeling today with what we did yesterday and it’s a good thing towards my recovery.
Thursday is my rest day anyway and I’ll have to rest again tonight. Movement does feel good so if it’s not raining, maybe I’ll go for a walk with my son.
No Dance Mania tomorrow though, so that bums me out. There is a yoga class at my temple in the morning so I might go to that and get a good stretch.
What sucks is because I was resting and not moving, I did want to snack and eat and I had to really fight it. I was thankful for the massage appointment because it did help redirect my time a bit away from sitting in front of the TV and wanting to eat.
Hopefully tonight will be better.
