A different workout!

A different workout!

Yesterday we went to visit Canaerfon castle in Wales (built 800 yrs ago). My son insisted that we explored every ancient spiral staircase from dungeon to turret top. That was almost 4 hrs of stair climbing!! Today I had definite DOMS in my calves and thighs and so decided that it must be time to invest in a foam roller.
Only £8.99 later I got to try it out. Shock horror it hurts!!!! I wasn’t expecting that ha ha! But then why wouldn’t it, you are putting your whole body weight onto that small contact area between the roller and muscle.

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
