2 miles. Doesn't seem like much but for my 40th birthday it was an awesome gift. After 2 weeks of thinking I could stretch out the muscle myself and having zero improvement (actually it felt worse) I decided to go back to the PT. Naturally the answer was Astym and although it hurt, I immediately felt an improvement and was ecstatic the next day that I could run 2 miles with less discomfort than before.
The 2 miles was a start to a great day. My co-workers decorated my office, Cindy made the awesomest cake and John sent me flowers. Turning 40 wasn't so bad.
