STATIC STRETCHES

Many runners are guilty of ignoring the post-stretch routine, but stretching plays a huge role in the health and well-being of your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  A simple 5-minute stretch routine could be the secret to healthier, stronger legs, and an injury-free training season!  Try these stretches after your next workout.  Hold each static stretch for 30 seconds before moving on to the next pose.
