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.
