What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

#TuesdayTidbit - Do You Foam Roll?

For today's #TuesdayTidbit - let's talk about foam rolling. Do you roll? I do, but not as consistent as I probably should. But I know personally when I make a habit of foam rolling, I recovery a lot faster than when I don't. Pretty much it's self massage or a self-myofascial release (SMR). And for me it works wonders.

Here is a video series from
Runner's World to learn how to efficiently use a foam roller.

 
In addition to a foam roller, I also use a marathon stick.
If you've never tried foam rolling or using a marathon stick, I encourage you to give it a try. And of course listen to your body! Foam rolling isn't always pleasant, at times it's painful. But if you feel intense pain or feel worse after foam rolling, then of course stop and don't continue rolling that particular area.

I roll - do you?

  2. I do foam roll, sometimes. I'm addicted to my R8 roller though, a bit different than the foam roller but same concept. I actually prefer it over the foam roller!
