Hi fellow runners
I did not know this tool until a few weeks ago... I have always been just a runner and did not do much more than that, at least in the past. Did not know about cros-training, or massaging... Now that I am aging and I need to find excuses to my training injuries (a part from age of course and th fact that I stopped for over ten years and that when I started again I was 26 kilos more), I am starting to look at all these things.
And one that is particularly new and unknown to me is the foam roller, so I am asking you... any experience? How do you use it? When? do you need warm up first? Is there a special technique or something or just roll on the floor ... and finally is it useful? (ok this one is probably rhetorical question as probably you do find it useful... but how and when did/do you use it?
