7 Must-Do Foam-Roller Moves Perfect For Runners

When you're wrapped up in marathon training, foam rolling is vital. This self-massaging technique loosens stiff muscles and can keep fascia (connective tissue in muscles) loose. Foam rolling, along with our marathon stretching series, can help prevent injury, keeping you healthy and strong leading up to race day. This preventive routine takes only 10-15 minutes — you could do it every day if you like but should aim to roll at least once or twice a week. Your body will thank you. If you're training for a marathon, don't forget to check out our 18-week training plan!
