Post Run Stretching

I started running in college and built up to running 6 miles 3-4 days a week. I made the terrible mistake of not taking stretching seriously.

The result: 2 seriously annoying injuries. I developed runners knee and ITB syndrome. Initially I took some time off and strengthened my quads and hamstrings which allowed my runners knee to heal. However, I have had ongoing issues with ITB syndrome.

Make sure you warm up properlyyou need to loosen your tight hips before you run, and make sure you stretch afterward. 

Here is a fabulous post-run stretching routine I found to make sure you cover everything.


Stretch. Do it. You’ll be glad you did.
