Well, no one told me, even the postman who brought it said 'in for some pain then?' It was OH's idea, not mine. What with my recovering shin and sore calves - today missed park run, I thought, ok, how bad can it be? And every little helps, right? Especially after chap in running shop scrabbled to the floor to demonstrate his calf flat ironing technique with all his weight on one.
Lordy, Lordy, lordy, had tears in my eyes, looks so innocent doesn't it? Just a light peice of foam, quite pretty really, with its little knobbly bits, but oh don't be fooled, this instrument of torture belongs in the Devils house, and this is good for you?
Well, having said that, it has brought some relief, I can't tolerate the one leg over the other for calf rolling yet, but gently, gently and we might just become friends.......
Fingers crossed it keeps me on track for a (slow) 10k in a couple of weeks.
But buyer beware!
(When I started this, did I ever imagine I would be purposely compressing my calf muscles on a Saturday afternoon, causing myself pain, and thinking this is a good idea😁 ? Crikey what happened!)
