I love my foam roller and wouldn't be without it. That and my tennis ball/golf ball for targeting calves, soles and piriformis. Generally use them every couple of days for 10 mins at a time but every few weeks I have a monster session and spend a couple of hours with them ironing out all my tight bits and niggles.
I didn't notice but my boyfriend pointed out to me that each time I have beat him in a race or set a new PB, it's always been within a few days of one of these long sessions. Easing off all my tight bits seems to make me run much faster!
