From the Publisher
Stretching promotes circulation and blood flow to the muscles that have just been put through the wringer. It also helps realign your back with better postural awareness. Take this time to decompress after your training session, reflecting on the time well spent bettering yourself and your fitness. Bottom line: Many physiological benefits occur while stretching lightly post-run.
One of many tips to keep you running: Rest and Recovery
Light, Post-Run Stretching:
After a hard training session, stretching lightly can enhance your recovery process. Find a comfortable spot to sit and gently put your muscles and joints through a series of easy mobility stretches when your body is all warmed up. Dedicating a spot in your home can help motivate you to consistently stretch after a run. Think of it as your own little “pre-hab” center.
Stretching after a run can be quick; all you really need is just 5 to 10 minutes. I highly recommend The Whartons' Stretch Book, which illustrates the proper way to perform Active Isolate Stretching, or AIS. And if you want some visuals of the stretching routine, search YouTube videos on AIS.
Stretching is by far the best habit you can develop to keep healthy and strong for years to come.
