Last week I bought a foam roller to try out and as it arrived the day before, I had a go with it last night when I got home. My conclusion so far was that despite the fact I need to work on my core muscles to be able to roll properly(!), I've got a lot of rather painful muscle knots in my upper back and calves. Although incredibly painful to roll, they did feel great afterwards and I'm looking forwards to trying it again tonight.
P is working late again, which means I'll be doubling up gym time again today in anticipation of a rather food-packed day tomorrow! I'm going for Thai at lunchtime and then a curry in the evening after going to the local Evans 'One for the Girls' night with a friend - yum!
Although my feet are feeling a little better, I'm still off running at the moment so this morning's workout was 35 minutes on the Arc trainer, followed by 10 minutes rowing for a grand total of 451 cals. I should have at least another 30 minutes down there again this evening so will be interesting to see how many more I can do! :)
Arc Trainer (Level 6, 130+ rpm) = 35 minutes
Rowing Machine (moderate speed, 32+ spm) = 10 mins
