Last spring I began going to a local barre studio and discovered how much I love working out in group classes. For years I spent my workout time in solo pursuits, running on the treadmill, ducking into the small weight room at the gym running through our neighborhood or on nearby trails, and I was a little surprised by how much inspiration I found by surrounding myself with strong, enthusiastic women. Their energy and support make getting up well before dawn worth it, and the classes are a part of my morning that set the tone for my day. I can’t imagine giving them up.
Adding workouts meant adding muscle soreness
I missed running, though. I missed checking off miles for a training schedule, seeing the sun rise over the horizon and matching the pounding of my feet to the beating of my heart and the music in my earbuds. Slowly, I began adding runs after my classes and on the weekends. The combination of classes and running provide the balance I crave in my days, but they also push my body to limits I haven’t felt in many years. As I contemplate training for a half-marathon, I know I’ll be adding more and more miles to my schedule, and my muscles are already complaining a bit.
Heat therapy for pain relief
My foam roller and I are developing a close, personal relationship, but I also find heat to be a huge relief, especially on my lower back. Heat has been found as an effective, fast and natural way of helping to alleviate muscle pain and soreness, and for that same reason, Sunbeam® pain relief products use heat as a solution to assist with pain and discomfort, helping increase blood flow to sore areas for muscle relaxation and faster healing. Sunbeam® heat therapy will help you “feel the ahh,” and you can combat your aches and pain in a quick, non-invasive and drug free way. Like me, you might discover heat therapy will be the key to #FindYourAhh.
