For the next two nights we are staying in Milan mainly to do a little bit of shopping.We arrived quite light as we drove here all the way from Barcelona, all crammed into my little car but I did take the chance to try something I never had the chance to try before: the foam roller!
Almost all in black for this stretching session.
After my first fro-yo, this was another “love at first use”. I was feeling sore and tight from the last days of running on the dreadmill and the sitting around in the car for hours. First I rolled out my calves, then my hamstrings and glutes, lower back and upper back and finally just a few more spots that were bothering me.
My new best friend.
The result? Well, of course I do still feel my muscles but the tightness has completely gone! I am so amazed! I used to “foam” roll using a 2 litre water bottle. Now I am really determined to find a store that sells foam rollers in Hungary, I just haven`t seen any yet and I hate ordering when the postal service is not the most reliable. Or perhaps a little DIY? It would be about time.
Post-stretching, ready for dinner.
