TRAINING PLAN STARTS. Runners and walkers, your long-distance workout is into double digits this week! Can you believe yourself? Wow! This calls for a celebration AND A FOAM ROLL.
You might consider performing an abbreviated foam rolling session on the areas that tend to bother you BEFORE running or walking, and a full session afterward. You can foam roll the next day as well, if still feeling a bit sore.
The bit of advice about pre-run foam rolling was provided by a trainer who at the time, was coaching a championship high school cross country team. Tim Broe now heads training at Saucony™ shoes company's Freedom Track Club, which is dedicated to developing Olympic running hopefuls. It's not a practice prescribed only for oldsters.
Congratulations for all the progress made this far.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
