My current BRF: the foam roller
Sorry, S and Y, but right now my foam roller is my BRF (best running friend).
After the Edinburgh Rock ‘n Roll half marathon I needed a few days off which I took with smiles. However, today I got back on the horse so to speak or better: back into my running shoes.
I went for a slow recovery run around the block. And, oh my, could I hear my IT band cry.
So back at home out came the foam roller and it wasn’t pretty.
But as BRFs do, they tell you to suck it up. 🙂 So I did! Feeling better already and will go for some more later.
In case you are not sure how to use a foam roller, here is a video that explains foam rolling.
