Some Running Links…

Posted: January 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Recently, I had the chance to do an informal lecture at the local running store in town. In the short talk, I tried to emphasize a few things runners (and most people, for that matter) usually neglect. Namely, soft tissue work and stability training.

The first thing we spoke about was foam rolling as either a warm-up or cool down (or both). Dr. Jeff Cubos designed a great 6 minute run prep:

For some thoughts on stability or core training for runners, Dr. Cubos posted a great article, ‘Injured? Take a Break!’

Finally, here is a quick stability exercise that requires minimal equipment and even less time to perform.

Happy Running!
