Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

#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!
