I am participating in a sponsored campaign hosted by fast acting Advil® Film-Coated and I received a free sample of Advil® Film-Coated. This is a sponsored post for SocialStars by Crowdtap. All opinions expressed are my own. #FastAdvil
I am a busy mom of three but that doesn’t define me. I am a loving wife, a giggly girlfriend and an avid runner and dancer. Not only are my girls dancing every day of the week but I am also in the studio while they are at school enjoying working out.
It’s even better that I get to dance with my friends and we have a lot of fun pushing one another to do our best. In fact some days they push me so hard that I am left with minor aches and pains. Avoiding working pains and strains can be hard though when you’re really pushing yourself and building muscle.
My day doesn’t end after my workout though, it often begins with it and there’s still children to gather from school and shuttle around to their own after school activities. Let alone all the happy madness in between dinner and bedtime. My day is so full so I can’t be stopped with aches and pains.
On the days I am not dancing you will find me running. Next month I run my first half marathon and living in California it was so hot this summer that running outside was unbearable. I’ve gone back to running outdoors now that the heat has broken and the weather has cooled down but I’m still pushing my body again and it feels great. No matter my best efforts some days after running 7 miles I’m just sore.
That’s why some days this busy mom reaches for Advil® Film-Coated because there’s nothing worse than pain putting a stop to your entire day. I don’t have time for sick days let alone pain from my morning workout so I need something that is fast acting so I can get on with my day.
3 Simple Tips For Avoiding Workout Pains & Strains
- STREEEETCH – Stretching properly before each workout is only going to help you perform better and warm up faster but it will also help you not be so sore after. Properly cooling down and stretching after working out is also very beneficial. Hold long stretches and try to lock your knees as much as you can as you stretch the lower portion on your body. Flexibility and balance take time and are an essential part of your whole body workout.
- Ice It Out & Relax Away With Heat – If you know you’ve had an exceptional workout and have pushed yourself it’s best to apply ice to sores joints. Once you have iced it you can apply heat later on to relieve any aches and pains might be left over. Also you can relax by taking a bath or using a massager.
- Find Relief – Advil® Film-Coated works when you need it most and in just minutes it’s working. Fast acting, Advil® has a unique, specially formulated ultra-thin coating. Since no other pain reliever has been proven to work faster or stronger I know that Advil® works!!
The days that I struggle most after workouts are the days that I’m not eating a full breakfast and of course when I’m not hydrating like I should be. So it’s always important that you drink plenty of water. When you need it Advil® Film-Coated is there. Be sure to read the instructions and follow the directions based upon the packaging.
I used some fast acting Advil® Film-Coated this week after my longer mid-week run. My calves were just so sore from running that I needed relief fast. So whether it’s a headache or minor aches and pains nothing will stop my day with Advil® Film-Coated. You can learn more about the products on Advil’s Facebook page.
My workouts might cause me pain from time to time but I’m getting stronger and it’s that time that I spend with myself that makes me a better wife, mother and friend.
