“Don’t worry, it only seems kinky the first time.”
Let’s talk about the highlight of my week. Now that I have begun my training for the CrossFit Open, I have been spending more quality time with my favorite “boyfriend”… CrossFit. All this intense training, after a long hiatus from consistently working out, has been physically challenging.
Sadly, I have a history of Sciatica, from years of being a runner. Unfortunately, it decided to flare up just before I began my first week of training. Imagine lower back pain, that shoots down your hip, leg, knee and ending at the top of your foot. Not only is it physically painful, but extremely frustrating, because it hinders my performance.
I have zero desire to injure myself, all in the name of CrossFit or running. I have seen friends with serious running or weightlifting related injuries, ain’t nobody got time for that. Last thing I need in my life is a back injury.
All week, I have been making sweet, sweet, sweet love to my heating pad and foam roller. I’d be lost without them.
I was getting really worried earlier in the week, even to the point of calling up a chiropractor, for this pain. All I wanted to do was crack my back and make it go away. However, after calling my insurance, I discovered it is not covered in my health care plan. All that money I spend each month for health care, for what???
No joke, I even had my little fella, walk on my back, in hopes of relief. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Finally, I Googled and YouTubed, how to deal with sciatic nerve pain, using a foam roller. DING. DING. DING. I found a winner.
Who knew I would fall in love with a foam roller? Seriously, why have I not been doing this all along. Every kink, ache, tightness was rolled away, as I was making sweet love with my foam roller. Working out ever inch of my body, cracking my back and leaving me wanting more… I may have fallen in love with foam roller.
What is really sad, is that my foam roller is the closest I have had to any loving in a long time, long, long time…
Which leads to my next train of thought, that when I am working out my muscles, with the various foam roller exercises, I cannot but think it reminds me of sex. Honestely, when you are straddling a large cylinder object, between your thighs, how could you not think of DOING IT???
Maybe, I am just long over due for some sexy time, but all this rubbing, rocking, compromising positions, just reminds me of how much I miss sex.
Seriously, it has only been a few months, but I miss it. Not just sex. Anyone can have sex. I miss intimacy, closeness, making love, companionship, caresses, passionate kisses, pillow talk, embraces, warmth shared by only two, etc.
Maybe it is time, I take a chance on dating, love, romance, in order to bring all of these wonderful feelings back into my life. Just more late night musings, on yet another quiet night spent home alone.
Do you use a foam roller?
What’s your longest dry spell?
