Stretch after every run!
Don’t forget a high-protein snack is a must for proper recovery!
Over the weekend a bunch of us Saltines got together at our first ever Salty Camp! Woo! It was a super fun weekend of running, giggling, and teaching and learning. Poppy helped us understand anatomy and what little things we could do ourselves to keep our soft tissues healthy. Ginger explained how mindfulness could enhance our running and our lives. And Barley showed us how easy it can be to get in strength work anywhere.
I definitely learned a lot, but was wondering how easy it will be to squeeze these new things I learned into my normal life. Between running all the miles and, well, life, it’s hard to get in all the little extras.
How do you get it in? Do you activate your glutes at stop lights? Do you foam roll while watching the Daily Show? Do you stretch while the kids play on the playground?
