things: moxa

先日の大会の1週間前に、最後の練習で足柄峠に行って来ました(なぜ金太郎の足柄峠? 詳しくはこちら)。
One week before a race the other day, I went to practice last Ashigara-toge for my last training (Why Ashigara-toge? More details in this book)

...but I have a sore knee from that night.

My right knee had water before. The daily morning and evening rush coals.

I was alright at a race, but still have funny feeling at my knee. I tweeted so to my running friends.

They got back like: "1) if you have more pain after running, take a break. 2) if you have pain when you are not running, go to hospital. 3) if you are ok to run somehow, make sure to slow down than usual and see how it goes"

"how about giving a massage?"

What I used niki-niki is 120% imitative word, sorry about that. If I try to describe it hard, it'd be little men are having a party inside of my knee and that would make pain and a little itchy feeling.

Anyhow, I did moxa today again.
Where you put them are Shitsugai (right below your knee dish), Kekkai (three fingers above from your dish and inside), Ryukyu (three fingers above from your dish and outside).

A patella (dish) 's lower edge is what red allows are.

Where moxa is burnt out, you'd feel almost really burnt. They said it'd be good to keep it for a while after it's burnt out, but you don't have to put it through yourself if you don't like it. It'd be the best how you feel relax at most, I'd say.
