…do a squat!
A squat is perfect to do post-run or race because this one quick and easy pose stretches all these areas:
- achilles tendon
also good practice if you want to skip the porta-potty line on race day
** Tip – if you’re well balanced use your elbows to push into your knees/ inner thighs to deepen the stretch a bit!
Be warned though, once you’re down there if you just ran a hard race you may need a hand to get back up – or you may just topple right over like I did after the New York 13.1 last month!
I’m going to try that on Sunday Danielle! 🙂 – Simone
I was definitely doing squats every time I was stopped after I finished the half on Sunday. Who knew I was actually doing the right thing? Awesome! 🙂
Love it, today is jam packed so one stretch is gonna be golden before my run!! THANKS!!
Love this….i will try this before my speedwork tomorrow!
I love that stretch!
Love this stretch.
Who knew you could pack so much goodness into one little stretch? 🙂
Ha Ha! I love your “what not to do”. 🙂
