I used to be really good (especially while injured) at making sure to do at least 2-3 hours of yoga per week and after each run I would stretch for about 10 minutes, followed by foam rolling when I got home.
I have read in many different places about the importance of yoga for runners mentally (helping to calm your mind and mediatate during runs is AWESOME) and physically (balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength).
It has been hard to do yoga while in Cali because the gym I go to here only offers it twice a week at really weird times and I feel a little awkward in the living room getting my Jillian yoga melt-down DVD on with my Brother-In-Laws sitting on the couch……….
I am trying to figure out what a good amount of Yoga/stretching is for Runners…….so, I wanted to ask YOU how often you do yoga? How often do you take time to stretch and work on your flexibility? Do you think that it is important to do yoga/stretch often?
