When ever I get some massage or something similar if that's possible... I have to question " is this better than a tennis ball?" Most often the answer is no.

A massage is generally more fun, but rarely more effective. I have developed a deep and personal relationship with a lacrosse ball.

Tennis ball has made distinct improvement in the glute. Now if it stops raining, I will try some short speed runs (200 m) and see how that feels.

omg why.

How about you keep rolling with the ball and do hamstring/glute exercises and avoid anything above 80% of full speed for a few weeks? what can you possibly gain from 200m repeats that are bound to aggravate your hamstring?

But I ran a marathon on a fractured patella, so that's just one idiot jabbering at the other idiot :)

Running at 90% on the track seems to make more sense than trying to sprint for the first time at Pawtuckaway this weekend.

We need to find better role models.

Pretty sure someone hacked Phil's log, as what was posted this week was uncharacteristically prudent.

Trail, road, finish chute?
