Even days after my insane run on the Taylor Swift Trail, muscles were sore.
Tuesday night I turned to my foam roller, and ice, with great results the next day.
Wednesday night rolled around and I decided to repeat, placing my ice packs in the same places – on both sides of my legs/hips up near my glutes, and under each Achilles.
After the regimented 20 minutes I removed my packs and noticed my left leg felt funny. It was numb and felt like there was a piece of packing tape over my skin.
After a few seconds of panic, my usual initial reaction, I hit “the Google” and determined I had ice pack burn.
Assuming it wasn’t that serious, I warmed the area and went to bed.
This morning, the swelling and redness was still there, but the weird packing tape feeling was gone.
