Day 16 of 2016. Foam roller. Friend, or foe?

It’s been an odd day. Firstly, parkrun was cancelled due to the amount of ice on the path. Correct decision – but it threw me. Saturday with no parkrun is just wrong! Anyway, rather than test out my calf niggle on an alternative run I went home and got stuck into using the foam roller on my troublesome leg.

 

Foam roller. Dont be fooled by the innocent look…

 
The idea is that rolling the affected muscle group over the foam aids recovery, and prevents further injury. In that way, it could be argued that it’s a friend of any runner.  When it finds the right spot though…. it hurts!  That’s when it easy to regard it as a bit of a foe!
