Ha ha!! Thanks peter.. I am off to get myself a foam roller.. Fab idea.. I am willing to try anything as just want to be able to run again and get rid of the stiff / aching feeling.. I appreciate your comment.. Incidentally - what colour hat?!
You can surprise me, mixed off cuts would be great!
My foam roller is a Triggerpoint one. It's a bit pricey and shorter than usual but is very useful as 1 it is easier to store being small and 2 it has a very solid core meaning it won't distort like a regular foam roller and hence will last a lot longer. Also it comes in orange which is one of my favourite colours!
Forgot to add, get advice on how to get the best from your roller, they can inflict plenty of pain and perhaps not help, you need to identify where the problems are and know how to treat them. A physio would be best or a good pilates tutor. Pilates is also well worth considering if you don't already, I love it and it really helps.
