Let’s face it. It can be so easy to put on your shoes, do the run, and then come home to take of your shoes and let your feet breath, all the time neglecting to stretch the sweet muscles that worked so hard for you during your run, practice, or jog.
I know I have woken up the day after a run and only then realized my muscles were stiff. And I’ve also had the thought before that “tight muscles are just part of running”.
The good new is, you don’t have to accept stiff muscles as part of being a runner, and in fact, adding stretching to your routine can greatly improve your performance if you are an athlete! Spending just a little bit of time stretching before and after a casual jog can be the difference of feeling tight and sore to feeling long, lithe, and energized. Give me that latter please. 😝
So what do you say? Will you join me for a stretch?!
I designed 2 NEW videos for my YouTube channel: Move with Bri that will support you in adding stretching to your routine. I’ve taken the hard work out of figuring out what you should do or how long you should do it, and provide you with a simple yet super effective PRE-RUN Yoga sequence and POST RUN Yoga stretch.
Head to my channel and start adding these two short and sweet stretch sequences every time you put on your shoes to hit the pavement. I hope you enjoy and these support you well!
