If you’re anything like me then you probably don’t spend enough time with your yoga mat.
Usually I had rather be on the treadmill with my music than on a mat alone with my thoughts. While I always feel better (and more loose!) after a good yoga sesh, I don’t do it often enough. So in hoping that I will take my own advice, today I am sharing some of the best poses for runners.
Let’s start simple.
• Downward Dog
Benefits: Stretches hamstrings, calves, and foot arches; strengthens shoulders.
Benefits: Stretches hip flexors; strengthens hamstrings and quads.
• Legs Up The Wall (another favorite! especially after a long run)
Benefits: Relieves tension in legs, feet, and back; stretches hamstrings and glutes.
Hopefully these poses will help you limber and injury-free while running.
