If you are a runner, it is only a matter of time before you find yourself on the ground having fallen or slipped during a run.
Running as a hobby or a way to stay fit is great. If you have a great running route, it is a way to enjoy the beauty of your neighborhood, your park, or nature’s landscapes. It is definitely a way to feel the inner you once you’ve reached a state of equilibrium during a very long run.
However, this feeling can quickly be interrupted when you take a spill. If you don’t know how to roll, you can end up with injuries that will put a major damper on your training.
Below is an illustration of how a shoulder roll is done. Although it is shown in a martial arts setting, the rolling concept is exactly the same. Once you get used to rolling, your body will automatically go into rolling mode when you find yourself taking a trip.
