Yesterday I was leaving the house as Danny was getting back from work.
“Where ya heading?”
“Target. I need to get a foam roller.”
He looked at me like I had nine heads, but he knows better than to ask questions and just rolls with my weirdness. After a quick trip, (I knew just where the roller was…and this time on clearance! Yeah!) I returned with my prized possession in hand!
Jane Fonda and Tone it UP have partnered to create some workout supplies and DVDs available at Target. Although I may have been able to snag a roller cheaper at a running store (I’m honestly not sure how much they go for) I knew this one could be purchased quickly. (Plus, a roller is a roller.. I think?)
Lately I’ve been writing about the great amount of soreness in my calves as a result of running a 14k. I LOVE running, and I’d hate to have my “career” end so soon because I’m not properly stretching or taking care of my muscles. On top of the addition of yoga to my workouts, I’ve decided that a foam roller may be a great way to relieve my muscle pain.
Because it’s absolutely normal to test out your foam roller in the hallway, wearing jeans and boots. It was at this point I was called ridiculous. In the nicest, most caring way possible.
S0 far I have been working on this list of exercises. I’ll obviously be paying much additional attention to these calves of mine. Stress release, alright!
