Foam Rolling?

Pumpkin oats this time!

Pretty much my usual combo: oats, almond milk, loads of cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans, plus unsweetened coconut, cottage cheese, and canned pumpkin. Topped with a spoonful of PB of course 🙂



Recently I’ve started using a foam roller after my runs to help stretch out my IT band. I haven’t been having any problems with it recently, so I’m going to keep the foam rolling as part of my routine just as insurance.


If I’m already foam rolling, I might as well incorporate a little more, but the only thing I know how to use it for is my hip!

I found this article about foam rolling for runners helpful, but it’s a little hard to figure out if I’m doing it right or not.

What foam rolling exercises do you do, if any? Any tips?!

    I ❤ my foam roller! I use it mostly for my ITB and hip/butt areas too. Sometimes I use it for my calves.

    I have a long one that I lay on and it goes from under my butt up along my back and my shoulders wrap around it. It really helps to open up my back/shoulders and relax them.

      I’ll have to try it on my shoulders, I bet that feels good after being tense from a run!

    I’ve never done foam rolling, but i’ve heard it can be really helpful.
