For the past several months, I have been using a couple ingenious massagers created by Addaday. While the massaging stick popularized by the company The Stick has been around for years with a its very popular product, Addaday has taken the concept and improved on it.
Getting nutrition down during a marathon can be a tricky thing. This is especially true in late miles when your stomach has shut down and you are hanging on for dear life. That is why the products at Aminoskin got me curious. Aminoskin offers a line of products developed in Germany that profess to supply amino acids during a workout from skin absorption.
This has been a terrible training season for me. It started out well, then a cascade of injuries occurred and I have had to cancel all my races this fall. Sadly, I have been injured enough that I have begun to learn the names of muscles, tendons and fascia that I never new about before.
Truthfully, I wish I were oblivious. But, this experience allows me to share information about recovery products. Two of my mainstay products are foam rollers and The Stick. I have one of these at both home and work. But there is a third device that I don’t always talk about. It has been out for a couple years, but surprisingly not everyone has heard of it. Even my chiropractor wasn’t familiar with it. It being the Moji 360 Mini Massager.
Some day I will learn. When I stop running in a pair of shoes, they need to be retired completely. I just wore my shoes that took me through my first marathon. My hip was feeling like it was out of alignment. I have changed to another pair of shoes Which ones? A pair that I’m about to retire… Well, baby steps.
