Best 6 Stretches!
I’ve had a few requests for great stretches. So I found these and love them. It doesn’t actually matter much that these are stretches for bikers. They’re just what runners need, too. Especially if you’re just beginning to train or get into running again, these stretches are essential for remaining comfortable. If you’re like me, and you’ve been running forever, then these stretches might just keep you healthy.
Two years ago I started running intervals to increase my speed. My calves tightened up and soon I developed some discomfort in my heel. Little did I know that I had irritated my plantar fascia and within a couple of months, I actually found myself in my doctor’s office. The killer diagnosis? Plantar Fasciitis due to lack of stretching. Are you kidding me? I caused my own injury!
Do not let this happen to you. It’s a tough, 6 months. Trust me.
Plus, some doctors believe that stretching releases endorphins, much like massage. It might just make you feel good!
May your next run be a good one.
