What about non-pointless forms of self-flagellation :-p ?

(I feel like I am in an ice bath just now. I am however fully clothed in an adequately heated house :-( Still, maybe it is doing my legs some good.)

I don't jump into a cold bath after a run, I get into an empty bath and fill up with just cold water, it is much easier as no shock and will have the same effect. I turn the tap off when water is over thighs then start watch.

I do however have a nich hot cup of tea to drink when i start

You won't ever catch me having a cold bath (except when daughter has used all the hot water having a long shower)

England footy team in '66 had hot baths after matches and won the World Cup. The current team does and is shit.

Pick the bones out of that, as my work colleague is fond of saying.

Got something to say?
