One Mud Run Crew member shares lessons about learning to love the pain cave after completing a 12-hour Ultra Marathon.
Over the last month, my testing regimen has consisted of 3 days of Elevate Pain Relief Cream (rotating heating/cooling) applied liberally over my entire shoulder from chest to scapula and extending down the arm to the midpoint of both right biceps and triceps three times per day: 8:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. I then follow with 3 days of Ibuprofen use, 400mg taken at the same 8, 12, 4 intervals. How did Elevate CBD Pain Relief Cream compare to ibuprofen?
Both in training and in racing, I think of three categories of pain that are important to learn how to distinguish. I call them 1) expected pain, 2) manageable pain and 3) injury. These types of pain are your friends because they tell you what’s going on with your body, so you can know what to do. I say “learn” because initially it can be hard to distinguish between them.
