Have you ever been sucker-massaged?

I was sitting lying at the chiropractor office getting some work done on this stupid injury, when out of the blue, I get sucker-massaged.

What is sucker-massaged?  It is a very smart term made up word by yours truly for when you think you are about to get a good, deep massage that will make you feel like, “Ahhhh” afterwards.  AND THEN out the blue, it is a deep, not so good, horrible massage that makes you feel something so deep inside that you want to throw up and push their hands off you and punch them.

Okay, I would never punch her or him (Did I mentioned this happened more than once today, by two different people!) BUT holy crap, my gut reaction was to wriggle my hips like an 8 month old getting a diaper change and push them away.

That was the first time in my life where I actually could say that I felt pain similar to a contraction.

WHAT in the world was I having done?  Getting my psoas muscle massaged.  WORST thing ever!  Okay, maybe the worst thing ever is knowing I will have to do it again, and again, and again if I want to get better.  UGH!  I may need to pre-medicate before my next appointment.

I want to get better.  I know that my body is SO off right now.  BUT I miss running.  YUP, I said it.  I miss running.  This is something I NEVER would have thought I would say, BUT here it is out there for the world 6 people who actually read my blog postings to see.

Yes, I am whining. I am mad.

Yes, I can still run(but I have been limiting the miles to 3-4 and keeping the pace slow) and I can ride my bike.  BUT I have been trying to take more days off than on the past 2 weeks to heal. This makes me crabby—>

Yes, I will get better and stronger and faster for treating my injuries now versus later. (Let’s face it.  I have been putting this off long enough already.)

Yes, I may need to wear soft wrist restraints before the next person touches my left psoas again 🙂
