Are you sure you are warming up the right way before running?  Here are some streches and warm up exercises to get you ready to run!

Let’s say you have over done the training. I have done it, and it isn’t fun!  Women’s Health Magazine complied a list of ways to relieve that pain:


1. Use a foam roller
2. Take Tyenol
3. Stretch after a warm up
4. Apply heat to the sore spot
5. Take Omega-3 once a day

And if you’re still not sure if you should run?  Read this story from Huffington Post
