Frost Bite!

Postby toolonglegs » Thu Sep 22, 2011 3:58 pm

:oops: ...had a bit of a sore psoas / hip flexor pain last night so after a stretch I hit it with the ice pad...seems my new freezer is a bit cooler than old one!.
Wasn't on that long (close to the groin on inside of thigh...hence no photos :P )...when I lifted it up quite a big patch of flesh had gone hard and frozen.Whoops!.
Thawed it out quick enough but nice big red mark there this morning.

If you're sweaty.... salt + ice = way below 0°c

It is pretty much gone now...just was a bit surprised to pull up the pack and find such a solid lump of flesh...problem being the psoas muscle is so deep that you can really ice it.

One way to acclimatise to your forthcoming French winter rides.

Winter seems a long way off at the moment...ok the leaves are changing color but it is rather toasty!.
