[4/14] Self Care with Phila Massages

  • Philadelphia Runner University City 3621 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA (map)

Developing a self-care routine is an integral part of any training plan. Steady self-care can help improve range of motion, decrease pain and stiffness, increase your endurance, and it can help prevent common injuries.

Our "Self-care for Runners" workshop will help give you the knowledge needed to create your own self-care training routine, using a small, firm ball.

Over the duration of 45 minutes, we will learn some of the muscle groups involved in running, along with the actions that those groups perform. We will then demonstrate how to effectively locate and treat sore spots in these muscles on your own. To follow along on these demonstrations, you will need to bring a massage or lacrosse ball and wear some comfortable clothing!

** We will have a limited number of massage balls available to use. **
