Ease Aching Feet

Ease aching feet by rolling the bottom of your foot on a tennis ball. Begin seated:

Place a tennis ball on the floor. Next, place your bare foot on top of a tennis ball. Roll from your toes to your heel and back again for 10-20 rolls. Adjust pressure by pushing down harder or less.

After-Running Stretch

Mid-Foot Stretch!

After your next run, do this stretch to ease sore feet and tired legs. Here’s how:

Place the ball of your foot on a object about 4 inches off the floor such as a curb, foam roller or small step. Keeping your heel on the ground and ankle straight, slowly transfer your weight onto the ball of your foot. You should feel a slight stretch along the bottom of your foot. Hold for 10-30 seconds, then release.

*Consult your physician before beginning exercise.
