For many people, the beginning of Fall means one thing… it’s time for football!
We’re noticing that athletes at all levels, and particularly those at the professional level, are putting a lot of focus on what happens off of the field. There is more attention being placed on taking care of their bodies between practices and games and understanding the importance of proper recovery on their performance.
With Labor Day weekend coming up, we all have rest and recovery on the brain. We know how important exercising is for our bodies and minds, but it’s also important to take a step back and let our bodies recharge. Taking a rest day is essential to keeping your body healthy, injury free, and feeling its best.
Runners and gym-goers, take a break this LDW and consider trying these activities to help you recover and prepare for your next workout.
Courtney Dauwalter just won the prestigious Western States 100-mile endurance run in June of this year, with a time of 17 hours, 27 minutes and 2 seconds—the second fastest women’s time in the history of the race.
She’s a brand fan and OOFOS advocate, and we recently had a great time catching up with her about her training, recovery from the race, and the latest and greatest at OOFOS.
We put our feet through a lot. Whether it’s putting in the miles on hard asphalt pavement, walking barefoot on the hardwood or tile floors at home, or squeezing your feet into sky-high heels, during our day-to-day lives, our feet surely take a beating. Think about your life and the activities that you do that add stress to your feet.
We know the importance of taking care of our bodies in other ways—eating nutritious meals, exercising, getting proper sleep… so why do we neglect taking care of our feet?
National Flip Flop Day is celebrated on the 3rd Friday in June, when it’s warm and sunny throughout most of the country and people are ready to ditch their closed toe shoes for the summer.
Flip Flops sometimes get a bad reputation as being bad for your feet because of their typically unsupportive nature, though that isn’t always the case. Let’s face it, most people have at least one pair of cheap flip flops in their shoe collection. They’re inexpensive and easy to throw on for the beach, as shower shoes, or to let your feet breathe after you finish a hike or run, but those shoes aren’t the best option when it comes to foot health.
