Intervention?

"In fact, my thigh felt pretty much like someone was hitting it with a bat every time that my left foot hit the ground...." ("Ran. Finished. Happy. Sore." Hefferblog. January 25, 2009)
Well...now it looks like it too...

This photo doesn't do the purple-ness of my thigh any justice!

Walter thinks I need an intervention because I keep talkin' about this 10K I want to run this Saturday...

Help!

  2. That's pretty bruised looking. What caused that do you think? I was wondering about your progress otherwise.

  3. Hey Bruiser take it easy. We might need to call A&E if that is still bad this weekend and you go endure some pain.

  4. Ouch! I really hope you've been icing, although I think icing is the worst torture ever invented. But for you, do it! Do it now!

  5. You all are awesome with your encouragement & sympathy (and a little bit of lecture, which I deserve).

    Don't worry. Bag o'peas is regularly on hip/thigh when I'm home. I won't run this weekend.

    I'm pretty sure I just have a pulled a thigh muscle. I'm freaking out a little because some of the websites I'm looking at say that it takes months to heal!

  9. Wow... that is much worse than what I had initially interpreted! I hope you heal quickly and that the peas help. Here's to hoping you aren't sidelined for months!

  11. OK...

    (Using my best, stern, mom voice)

    Don't be like me!

    Put down the blog and go see a doctor!

    Now!

  14. In order to do an intervention, you would need to identify the problem that needs to be worked on. I don't really see a problem with running that 10K. LOL

  15. Wow. I'd get it checked out. I didn't know a pulled muscle could bruise like that lady...
