A begrudging Grid fan

It pains me to say it as much as it pains me to use it, but the grid seems to be working.

Every evening I dutifully roll about the sitting room floor, pulling faces and swearing like a sailor as I attempt to roll out those knots in my muscles. I count to 10 or more on the worst bits, holding it there as long as I can.

I have noticed it’s less agonising in some areas now, but that might just be my pain threshold’s improving.

Runner’s World rate it as a Top 40 good thing, I think it came in at no 32 in a feature in the May edition. And it was recommended by the bloke at Sweatshop.

Will I ever get to love something that inflicts pain so I can carry on running? Probably.
