Personally, I believe that I will go for a foam roller... something like in the picture above.
I keep reading and hearing how great these things are for sore muscles and help with recovery.... so, I just may give it a try. I have even looked on youtube to ensure that I will use properly as well!!
hmmmm, the above is true UNLESS you are in a middle of a MARATHON!!!!!! Did anyone read this? This girl ended up running 27.2 miles to win a full marathon due to an error .... wow! bet that would be frustrating and overwhelming.... but she did win!!! The things that make you say, "are you kidding me?!?" http://www.runnersworld.com/races/first-time-marathoner-wins-race-by-a-mile-literally?adbid=10152752550031987&adbpl=fb&adbpr=9815486986&cid=social44868666&short_code=2waif
Was able to fit in a 4 mile run at lunch! I really have to huzzle in order to get to gym, change, run, freshen up, change back into work attire and get back to work in exactly one hour!!!! But you know the saying, "where there is a will, there is a way!" Or something like that!!! So yes, I do cut corners to make the process speedy..... for instance, I wear my sports bra and running shorts under my dress (a little TMI, but the truth!!!)... Every second counts when you only have an hour!!! I snapped the picture above at the end of my run..... I was surprised that it wasn't more blurry! Not an easy task to run and take a picture on a treadmill and not fall!!!! You will have to cut me some slack about the finger in the picture..... i had a death grip on my phone so I wouldn't drop it!!! LOL! :) I cooled down for another quarter mile and then it was time to freshen up, change, and get back to work!!!!
Alberta sporting a Disney Sun visor..... not sure if she is hinting at going for a run or simply wants a trip to Disney!!!! :)
