This blog is the fourth in a series where our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, brings tips for injury prevention and strength training to help improve our running performance. Today Carrie shares a simple but great rehab exercise. #trainingtiptuesday
Our ankles are what I call our anchors, and if our anchor doesn't keep us up right then what will? I know this is really old school but it works. After sprains and surgery, physical therapists, doctors, and coaches have had me follow this simple exercise: drawing ABCs in the air. I have kept it in my routine of "rehab" ever since. I hope you find some benefit to keeping your ankles healthy, strong, and able to sustain all of the walking and running we do at MOTR!
