Last week it was all about strength - this week it's all about flexibility.
Strengthening key stabilising muscles, is without doubt, one of the most important things a runner can do to help prevent injury.
Strong muscles help to keep key structures stable during running gait, helping to provide stability for joints from your ankle to your pelvis.
Weak muscles can create instability which can put pressure on tendons and joints leading to inflammation and injury,
However, developing strong glutes, calves, quads and core alone, is only part of any injury prevention programme.
By also spending time releasing connective tissue and stretching tight muscles, you can help improve your biomechanics by releasing tension in the tendons.
There are a number of ways you can do this at home without the professional skills of a physiotherapist or sports massage therapist (although nothing can quite replace them), but using golf balls to release tight connective tissue on the soles of your feet (often) provides one of the most visual results of tissue release therapy.
This challenge is easy.
