Frostbite in late May?

Yes, it has been a long spring, but this is.... well, read on.

I was getting ready for a conference call yesterday, and I thought I would ice my knee to speed up recovery.

I always just put the ice pack right on the skin and tie a dish towel around it.

So, I did that. After preparing for the call, 45 minutes later I take the pack off. My skin was clumpy and black, and could not feel anything.

D'OH!

I know you are only supposed to ice for 10-15 minutes at a time, not on direct skin, but I have done this before.

It stung last night, but think it is okay today. Just some discoloration.

I told the Mrs. "I think I am ready for the 100, I don't even feel pain in my legs anymore".

Easy weekend for me. I have to recover. Maybe a 10-12 between today and Tuesday.

Hadd test #4 next week! I don't expect much improvement from the last.

Happy Memorial Day. Thank a Vet (not an animal doctor).

Thanks to all of you who are Veterans!
