My last post was apologizing for my lack of posts…and that was about a week or so ago. I feel like I owe my readers (the few who are still paying attention to this blog) an explanation.
I was offered a new job opportunity in Oklahoma about a week and half ago, so my husband and I decided to make them move. Needless to say, I’ve been doing a lot of packing and planning for the big move, which is happening in about a week.
The good news is that my mileage is going well. I’m on week four of my mileage increase and my body is responding great. I plan on dropping the miles a little bit next week during the big push before the move and then building again.
Now that I am comfortable with more mileage, I’m adding a couple of days of weight training to the schedule. My legs are excited that I’m building my upper body to help with the runs, but I’ve been so sore!
I will be the first to admit that I’m not a big on stretching. I hate it. Somehow, over the past 17 years of running
I’ve yet to have a major injury due to my extreme inflexibility, but I don’t want to jinx it. In an attempt to be preemptive, I bought a foam roller.
I’m in love.
Since bringing it home yesterday afternoon, I have spent most of my time rolling around on the living room floor. My body feels incredible!
What equipment, stretches or exercises help you increase flexibility?
