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:

  1. 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.
  2. If you are feeling extra sore, ice for 10-15 minutes to reduce inflation.
  3. If you are having a particularly bad flare up, take the day to rest rather than trying to push it.
