We really start to step up the mileage in week 3.
Now is a great time to talk about preventing injuries as you continue to train for the BolderBOULDER .
Stretching is always key to any exercise regimen. With running we recommend no static stretching pre-run but instead practicing dynamic stretching before you take off
Static stretching is good to do after you come back from a run.
Here are some additional tips to prevent soreness or help treat soreness if injuries start to flare up:
- Massage is great to help relieve sore muscles- You can use a foam roller ever night to break-up spots and work on tight spots.
- If you are feeling extra sore, ice for 10-15 minutes to reduce inflation.
- If you are having a particularly bad flare up, take the day to rest rather than trying to push it.
