Greetings

I'm taking a break from being a man of leisure, and getting back on my blogging. Wow, my reader is just packed full of goodness.

Friday I did my 3 miles, and Saturday I knocked down 6. That put me at a little over 20 for the week. Awesome.

I signed up to be in the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge, even though I don't use the term 'bootie' too often. I decided to rip off Denise, and put my results in a blog as well. I've often seen people engage in these contests.. I figured, why not?




I went to Dick's and bought a foam roller to work on my IT band. Never used one before. Holy smokes. Wow. That puppy hurt. I think it's a good pain, but holy shit. I've been doing that a couple of days now, and I think my IT band is a bit looser, but my leg sure as hell feels sore deep down inside.

For those that may care, it's a 6" diameter, and it's 36" long. And it's one hell of an expensive piece of foam. Chuckle.

Monday, I did 3 miles at the gym. I also went out and bought new running sneakers. I'm totally stoked ready to try them out. They're my first pairs of real running sneaks. Before, I was just running in some cross trainers. I'll let you know how it goes.

Alright all.. Keep on rockin!

The foam roller gets easier and less painful, it really does! Enjoy...

You should find that the foam roller get easier the longer you use it. It should help a lot.

The running-specific shoes should really help you stay healthy as well.

isn't that thing great? it hurts like hell while you're using it, but my calves feel better right afterwards.

Denise said...

Thanks for ripping me off...I'm flattered!! :-)

Enjoy your new shoes!

I keep wondering about all the foam roller hype. I might have to pull the trigger some day.

I've heard magical things about those rollers

I stopped using the roller because I am a wimp.. I figure the long run hurts enough without the added torture
