Being a runner, my muscles get sore and tight all of the time. One of the things I like to use on a regular basis is Biofreeze. If you’ve never used Biofreeze, it basically leaves a cool and tingling sensation that kind of numbs the area where you apply it.
Last Saturday, I had a longer run and I ran faster than I normally do. My hip flexors and adductors were definitely feeling it, so I decided to apply some Biofreeze to the areas.
An hour or two later, I forgot that I had applied the Biofreeze. It was pretty hot and humid, and I was chatting with some friends outside on a patio. As the day went on it got hotter and hotter. I started to feel some burning, and not the therapeutic tingle of Biofreeze. This was hell fire burning hot and it was amplifying by the minute.
Sweating + humidity+ heat + Biofreeze = Painful (<–understatement)
