Training Tip Tuesday #6

This week’s Training TIp Tuesday is something new I tried before my Sunday run: pre-run foam rolling!

Like I mentioned in my week in review, I was so sore Sunday morning (since I had run 14 miles the day before). So I did a quick foam rolling routine (calves, hamstrings, glutes and quads) before starting my run. And it seemed to help.

Of course, it wasn’t a magical cure to my soreness but I was feeling better at the beginning of my run. Doing dynamic warm ups helped too but the foam roller helps loosen my up muscles and they functioned much better on my run.

Is foam rolling part of pre-run routine? Let me know in the comments how you incorporate it and how it helps you out!
