I used a kitchen rolling pin on my foot thing morning. Ive got a hard spot on the bottom of my left heel. Im gonna try and work it out. I also have scare tissue on my achillies tendon but idk if foam rolling will work it out?

my injuries (which I've not suffered for some time now-knock on wood) tended towards calf and achilles- I foam (very, very firm foam) roll pretty religiously now and it seems to keep those gremlins at bay

Ive got a roller that Ive been using for about a month and I love it. I do need a stiffer one though. This one is getting pretty broken in.

Anyone get really tight/fatigued hip flexors (front where leg hinges). Usually starts around mile 4-5. was just the right leg so i figured it was a form issue on that side but now it's both? Got my half-marathon on sunday and will prob just take some ibuprofen before but wil need to address this deeper eventually.

Things I always do if something hurts: take ibuprofen, roll it out, stretch it, and ice. Also heat before I do my warm up.
If that'd doesn't fix the problem I go and see the trainer. (2-3 days of this is when I normally see at least some improvement)
Or in your case a physical therapist.

Just an idea

Foam roll, man. foam roller is a "miracle" cure!
If you're unsure how to use it, check youtube. there are tons of videos on there.

I recently started lifting again and i rolled my legs out last night and I feel much better today after being sore for the last few days

Did my first real half last week. It was cold as balls. Finished in 1:38. Pretty stocked considering I was worried all week about the cold. Had gotten to train in anything under 50.

Thanks, I was rolling routinely but now only once or twice a week. When's the best time? I heard post run isn't idead due to all the micro-traumas?

Nice job man......that's a great time! I have a 7am start time and it'll be in the 50's, then 80's by late morning (should be done then). Plan is to wear a light jacket and give to wife at first water station 2 miles in. That's cold as hell for the desert dwellers.

I'm still on my four day a week running schedule, averaging about 30 miles/week, typically w/ a long run on Saturday in the teens

My mid week runs are in the pitch dark, even though I get off work at 4:30 pm

Using two lamps, one on my head and one on my waist- helps me from wrecking

Thats the mileage I'm about to start with. We had our National meet this past weekend in Cedarville, OH. Finished 34th with a time of 26:40 for 8k (the course was a tad long however). As a team we finished 6th which is a heck of a lot better than last year. (They finished 18th.)
Keep in mind this is the NCCAA not the NCAA. Now on to off season training. 1 week completely off and then start running every other day and mountain biking or swimming the other day.
