A product review and return to normal?

I had a glorious 8 days of vacation on Sanibel Island and we left just in time to miss the most rain Florida has seen in years.  We soaked up the sun, put down the phones, computers, and tablets and chilled with the kids.  It was great.  I want to go back. I especially want to go back because Murphy's law has been in full swing since we got home.

 We've had car troubles, home troubles, work troubles, kid troubles, foot troubles, you name it.
I didn't get in the workouts I'd hoped while on vacay. I got in a couple, but definitely fell off the routine pretty quickly. I wasn't too worried about it because my ankle is still not 100%.  It's not enough to where it's affecting my running, but I can still feel it.  If that makes any sesnse.
You know I'm obsessed with bengay, but hubby makes fun of me because I always smell like bengay, I actually like the smell.  But I'm weird.

Well Bengay has a new product called Zero Degrees, you can actually store it in your freezer, that's where mine is!
Here's the deets:

  • Blasts away pain
  • Medicated pain relief
  • Lasts for hours
  • Instant icy-cold sensation
  • Vanishing scent***
  • May be stored in the freezer
  • Ideal for muscle and joint strain or sprain pain relief
Please note the "vanishing scent"

I've been using this after most runs.  It's nice and you don't get the heat like with traditional bengay and the cold sensation is nice since it's been over 100 degrees here, yup it's hotter here in the ATL than in Florida.  Go figure.  I think this product is great for sore muscles, but for a pull or strain I still like the regular bengay better. Nothing beats the heat!

I'm not going to complain about the heat because I love the hot weather, but it makes running HARD!
I'll be up bright and early to attempt my long run tomorrow.  TGIF Peeps... Stay cool my friends.
