Since I've had quite enough of running in the snow, I went to the Y this afternoon and put in 3.5 miles on the treadmill. While in the 'mill I ran 5K in 27:33. The extra .4 miles was .2 warm up and .2 cool down. My fastest 5K time ever! Yeah, yeah, it was on a treadmill. I'm going to celebrate anyway. I'm all about celebrating the small victories on the way to the big ones. The most important thing was that my knee felt completely normal even after pushing it a little.
The big brown truck dropped off a package for me today. My foam roller arrived. Woot! Uhhh...now what? So, I went in search of some samples of what to do with the foam roller. I found this video which is entertaining in a slightly cheesy way. I enjoyed it though and got some good ideas from it:
What is your favorite thing to do with the foam roller? How often do you use it?
