so long about getting one and today I finally made a decision and got one for myself. Since tomorrow is the official last day of school, I'll probably need to untie those knots before more settle in. I've always said that you should reward yourself for anything great you accomplish, reward as in getting your nails done, get a new pair of shoes, download a song or, in my case, get a
massage. I preach it high and low to all the people I know however I never follow my own advice. Funny how that is.
Today, I hopped on the table, laid on my belly and gave in to what I thought was going to be a most relaxing hour. I have to say there were moments that I nearly peed myself from how relaxed I was but then there were the moments where my masseuse really got into the knots; kneading them as if re kneading homemade bread for the forth time. I felt every hilly bump and rock-like lump as she kept prying around my back, neck and legs. She then asked me how long it's been since I've had a massage and embarrassingly, I told her about 3 years. I think she must have bumped her knee on the table. Made sense though she said, I had knots all over and because I worked out so hard I was tight everywhere. Massages are great! Not only do they relax you and feel great, but massages relax the muscles and unbind the muscle fibres so that you can then work out harder, stretch deeper and run longer.
Reward yourself for your hard work, you deserve it! Just ensure it’s not with a cookie, you're not a dog. Woof! Woof!
Until next time,
Live from the inside out
