I’m back on the foam roller wagon. I first rolled the IT bands a few weeks ago and thought, hm, a little painful but not nearly the agony it’s been before. Perhaps I should start doing this on a regular basis before things get out of hand. Great idea that I didn’t follow.
Which takes us to today. I have some knots and things after the 9.7 mile hilly snow run. Was it the hills? The snow and ice? Or the mileage? Perhaps all three, but I’ve been trying to work out some areas in my left calf and quadricep with only a little success.
Hence the foam roller. For some reason, I thought it would be interesting to roll out my shins. Ouch. Double doozy I think I want to cry ouch. What is going on down there? The IT band rolling was nothing in comparison. Quads kinda owie though. We have some work to do.
Thank goodness I’m splurging on a massage this coming weekend. Looks like I need it.
