December 2015

What a year 2015 has been for us here at The Runner's Academy! We have definitely grown our team of outstanding practitioners, and we have grown our team of amazing clients and patients!  We have seen many of you come back from injury and still attend your goal race or at least get back to the sport you love!  And others have made great gains in strength, technique and most importantly knowledge!  We are so happy to help each and every one of you in some way and hope that you keep running and/or stay active!

We hope that everyone enjoys the holidays and will be ready to make 2016 a great year!

Sincerely,

Ask Nate: Why Do You Like Foam Rolling Post-Run?
After all of my runs, I'm always sure to incorporate foam rolling as part of my recovery. I get in the routine of "run-roll-stretch", making sure to have a bite of something with a good mix of protein/carbs as I get rolling. Foam rolling is a form of self myofascial release, essentially helping to keep trigger points and scar tissue broken up within the muscle and fascia, allowing greater tissue extensibility, normal function, and normal motion. It will help decrease muscle tension and improve flexibility! The areas that I foam roll most frequently include the iliotibial band (ITB), gluteal muscles/piriformis, quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves. I certainly believe that when used often and correctly, the foam roller can help runners avoid many sport-related injuries. If you're not already doing so, what are you waiting for?? Get rolling!
