Do you have a foam roller? I love mine, I use it almost daily!!! I find that it works so well to relieve tight muscles and works out most of the kinks. If I use it often enough it can save me a trip to my massage girl. Which means saving money, which means a happy Husband :)
I roll my back, gluts, quads, hamis, calves, shins, and especially my hips. I have found that I prefer the 18" foam roller to work the best for me. The advantages of foam rolling are. It stretches muscles and tendons by using your own body weight. It increases blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. It's simple to use and your body benefits so much from using it. If you don't have one go get one and try it out!!!

One tip that I learned the hard way would be make sure your hair is pulled up! When you roll your back you end up getting stuck when you roll over your hair. NOT SO FUN ;)
My daily caloric intake today was 1192.
I didn't workout today. Sundays are my rest/recovery.
I hope everyone has a good week and has awesome runs, workouts, or weight training!
Good luck this week :)
