Winter Running - And Tight Core


Part #2

Speaking of tight core

This is a great time of year to spend some of your unused running moments on a little core as well as rolling and stretching those over used stabilizing muscles.

I really hate doing it

I don’t know why, it’s just as important as long runs, speed, hills, tempo and such but it’s truly the last thing I EVER want to do.

“If you hate doing a thing, that’s usually the thing you need to work on most”.

Someone once told me

Argh I hate it when that someone is right!!!! So here is my compromise on this subject. When I am on the computer I use my lacrosse ball and roll my glutes, hamstrings, lower back and feet.

When I put dinner in the oven I will roll my calves, quads, hammy again, and upper back. morning coffee time I do the couch stretch, hip flexors, hamstrings, calves and lower back. this may sound like it takes a long time but it’s probably a totally of 20 mins over the day, this is my crazy compromise lol
