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!
