I take pretty good care of myself; the weakest part of my game is remembering to drink enough water. I sometimes find myself walking around with a bottle of water half the day, and forgetting to drink it. (Oddly I didn't have the same issue 35 years ago with beer :) ).
On Saturday when out for my daily run, my right calf and soleus muscle cramped up about a mile from home. I was not a happy camper: things like this aren't supposed to happen "to me".
At that point it was a case of pick your poison: run or walk. Being a "more is more"-type I opted to run. It wasn't pretty but I made it home; by then the leg hurt quite a bit - particularly going up and down stairs.
Fortunately waiting for me at home was what I call Replenishing Care's "clinic-in-a-box": high-powered Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy, an enhanced Exercise with Oxygen (EWOT) platform, scar tissue therapy, a nature pad and pelvic correction technique. After all but drowning myself with water I used each of these methods (a couple combined) then hopped in my car for a 7 hour drive to train a new member of our practitioner network in the same methods.
As you might imagine I'd no sooner stepped out of the car after the 7 hour trip when I repeated the PEMF and scar tissue therapy at the practitioner's - and inhaled as much water as I could manage.
After a good night's sleep I ran the next morning just like every other day - albeit a little tender. By the next day (following another round of PEMF and scar tissue therapy) I was completely back to normal.
I almost wish the tenderness had lasted longer: it served as a great reminder to drink the water.
