I woke up the next morning and to my surprise I had mosquito bites all over. My ankle in particular was itchy, red, and a wee bit swollen.
I remembered when I stayed down in southern California over the weekend, the window was open and it was so warm I didn't need a blanket. Mosquitoes must have come in and feasted on an old mountain biking wound from the week before. I would think fresh soars are like a Vegas buffet to mosquitoes.Saturday it had doubled in size. Most my wounds I like to look at closely and in different lighting. I like to poke at them to gauge the amount of pain I am in or might be in later on.
It got pretty bad.
Okay maybe not that bad. But still pretty bad.
But with all my wounds, I figure its best to just...
walk it off.
The next morning I was greeted with a much less swollen leg.Sunday
This may not work for everyone, but it works for me, and one day I will pass this technique on to my children.
