When you're training for a race, foam rolling is vital. This self-massaging technique loosens stiff muscles and helps keep fascia (connective tissue in muscles) loose. Foam rolling, along with stretching and cross training, can help prevent repetitive stress injures that could disrupt training. We want to keep you healthy and strong leading up to race day. This preventive routine takes only 10 to 15 minutes — you could do it every day if you like but should aim to roll at least once or twice a week. Your body will thank you.
