Running Tip #9. Stretching should be a big part of training. Ideally every run starts with easy running and dynamic stretching. But it's most important after running.
Here are some of the best static stretches for running and cycling:
-Standing quad stretch
-Seated Pigeon pose to open the hip
-Child pose and cat-cow for the back
-Use a foam roller to fully stretch the IT band, hamstrings, and calves
-Use a hard ball to roll out the glute & under your feet
