A reader asked me the other day about my favorite post-run stretches. Here they are!
1. This is my absolute favorite stretch ever. Reasons for this one being my favorite: Brooke usually attacks me when I do it, I get to lie down and it helps stretch out my IT Band really nicely.
2. Pigeon Pose. This also feels so incredibly good because it is a great hip opener and it really stretches out my hip flexors which need a good stretching after a run.
3. Downward-Facing Dog. I have the world’s tightest hamstrings and so this stretches them out real nice. Plus, it feels good to get a little blood to my head after running for a while. Brooke really enjoys copying me.
–Runner’s Lunge. Another hip flexor stretch that I love. The hip flexors are what lift your legs up when you run so I love spending time stretching them after a run. Good thing my hair isn’t crazy sweaty;)
5. And all throughout the day I stretch my feet out because for some reason this training cycle they have decided to be crazy tight.
(I am sure the below photo is exactly what you were hoping to see this morning;)
NIKI did it again. She is my most favorite photographer.
This child of mine. I will share the rest when I get the disc!
I snapped this one with my phone:)
We were both starving by the time we finished and there was no time to do anything but get our favorite meal in the entire world from Cafe Rio.
PS why am I so obsessed with clothing that has little animals on it?!
Once Brooke went down I had a date with the show Extreme Weight Loss and some fruit snacks. I had to try both packs to see which one is better… turns out they are the exact same.
