the spasm in my left calf is gone. It has been there for 4 (FOUR!!!) days.

Even though I ran on Sunday. Even though I spend hours in the bathtub. Even though I took 600 mg of magnesium per day. Even though I massaged. Even though I stretched. The spasm stayed.

When I woke up this morning, it was finally gone. I can move my leg without pain. And I feel great. As a treat I took the stairs to get to my class room which is on 3rd floor. This will hopefully lead to a smaller behind. ;-P

Even better the sun is shining, though we've got -17°C = 2° F. But still the sun is shining and I'm free of pain and I've got the most amazing book to read.

"The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. This book is absolutely amazing and makes me want to sit in a comfy armchair at Starbucks with the Premium Hot Chocolate coming all through the day, reading and musing on the ideas presented. I absolutely love books like this and Starbucks is the perfect place to read them. Forget libraries, Starbucks is a whole lot better. (No I don't work for Starbucks, am payed by them or got shares.)



  1. I lurves books myself, but sitting at Starbucks reading will give you a BIGGER behind :-) of course, nobody wants that...

  2. If I get a muscle cramp or spasm, it's going to be my left calf. I pay lots of attention to it, and try to keep it happy.

    Loved The Black Swan. I was reading that the author had made a ton of money during the market meltdown last year, and now has no need to work for a living. Since then I've been meaning to reread it.

    Starbucks hot choco isn't bad, just expensive.

  3. Yippeee for being spasm free.
