If you include running as part of your regular fitness regimen you need to incorporate a balanced, well-rounded stretching routine to keep your muscles loose, supple and pain free.

You can download this free 10 minute stretching routine to your iPad, iPhone, Android or computer (you may need to right-click and choose Save target as…). Or you can watch it online here.

The best time to do this routine is at the end of your run. Cool down for a minute or two, then take a seat on the ground and go through the stretches at a slow, relaxed pace.

If you’re doing the routine without exercising first, be sure to warm up properly and if any of the exercises cause pain or severe discomfort, discontinue immediately.

To learn more about the muscles used in running and why a stretching routine for running is so important, take a look at my comprehensive running article.

Until next time, stay healthy, keep stretching and God bless.

 

Kind regards,
