After a good workout, I ache. Who doesn’t? Being a bloke means I don’t like to whinge, but quite amazingly the hints have not gone unnoticed, as Elemis’ Musclease Active Body Oil has appeared in the bathroom cabinet. Result.
There’s a rule in our house, if it’s out on the side, or in the cabinet (not in her drawer), then it’s fair game and her motto is: ‘If you use it, write about it!’.
Training for a half marathon, I am putting in more of the hard yards than usual. Not only am I hitting the gym like Dwayne Johnson, but I am out pummelling the pavement four times a week like Mo Farah, and my body is starting to feel it.
Which brings me to the mystical oil in the blue bottle; how to use it?
A few drops into a warm bath; tension reduced, muscles felt less tight and were greatly soothed, I slept like a hedgehog in Winter and when using it for massages it was unbelievably relaxing.
Voilà. It’s now part of my training regime.
