But, as we all know, a runner’s body needs regular RnR (not rock ‘n roll, though that’s nice too!). And this week, our massage therapist was on vacation…
just kidding, our live-in family massage therapist never takes a vacation:
Maztang 3D Shiatsu Massage Cushion Massager, in case you’re wondering. The seat and back have a “heat” option and the neck massager can be adjusted up or down, depending on your height.
Fabulous as it is, though, it cannot give you a leg massage and I’ve been needing one for a while. And I had an ooooold gift card with some dollars on it (Christmas 2011, I think — those cards never expire!).
I got the Blissage75 for $155, then claimed my $100 of free stuff. That added up to just about 73 cents per minute of massaging bliss, and at least a year’s supply of lotions, potions and magic socks:
My favorite thing about the Blissage75 is they put hot paraffin on your feet, so really in the end, it’s like getting a massage and a pedicure at the same time. Well, without the nail polish — but who needs that in the winter, anyway. Plus, at this time I only have eight toenails. No point overpaying.
Your turn: What do you do for R&R? Do you think of massages as a must — or an occasional splurge? How often do you get one?
A very easy six-miler. Enjoyed the company of these friends for a bit:
It’s kind of easy to pick up the pace my last mile form home, because of the slight loss of elevation. I keep wondering if that’s cheating.
