In this video I will go over the very simple stretches that I do after each of my runs. While there may be many stretches you can do, I find that over my 20+ years as a runner/triathlete these are the 4 stretches that I regularly complete and they have kept me injury free for a very long time.
I highly encourage you to stretch AFTER each of your runs.
You may find that your body may require to add 1 -2 other stretches that highlight parts of your body that need some extra attention.
The stretches that I do are:
- Calf Stretch
- Achilles Stretch
- Quad Stretch
- Shin Stretch
Try to hold each stretch for :15 and then switch legs. Aim to stretch each leg 3x before moving on to the next stretch.
