Bengay, icyhot, oil can, the web

On Saturday, I was feeling pretty good about me and karate. I made it through a candidate class and a run despite missing an entire week from a bad back. And I was good about getting into a jacuzi afterwards so I wouldn't get too stuff . And I stretched and drank plenty of water.

Nevertheless, last night and this morning, I was plenty stiff. When I looked in the medicine cabinet this morning, recently re-organized, I laughed out loud. Check out my collection of topicals, all lined up. By the way, after a shower and some of these creams, my son and I ran a nice mile this morning at 8 minutes even.

In fact, I was so sore, I started thinking about the Tin Woodsmen when Dorothy finds him all rusted in the field. There he is, unable to move, saying: "oil can." So I wondered, how incredible in this web? I did a quick search and sure enough, it's incredible. Here's the scene.

OIL CAN SCENE - I FEEL LIKE THE RUSTED TIN MAN

Pass the Ben Gay, please...Boy do I know how you feel! (Actually, I've found "Active On" better than Icy Hot) Hang in there! I know I'm going to!

I know the feeling! I used to wear a knee brace that made a squeaky sound. One night in class, a fellow black belt said.."Oil Can".

I no longer wear the brace...so now I can only blame my noisy joints. :)
