Paul here this week! I had a great time getting out to South Bank parkrun and catching up with Gareth and many of our awesome RIF REVers for their last parkrun before Christmas! I hope you guys have still been able to get out and go for runs during this busy time. I find it’s a great way to unwind after long hours spent in crowded shopping centres, I’m sure many of you guys will agree with me on that one!
This week I wanted to focus on an area of running that tends to be forgotten by many people in their training- a stretch routine! Stretches can be really simple and it is because of the simplicity of stretching that many runners fail to realise the importance of a good stretch routine. As a runner it’s something that you should be regularly incorporating into your routine. A good stretch routine is really the easiest way to start to improve your running because your length is closely linked to technique. The best thing about it is stretching can be done by any runner, but the key is you NEED to do them!
Check out the video we’ve put together where Ang shows you the 12 best stretches for running and really start to include these into your training and running routine!
Happy Running RIF REVers!
Wishing you guys a safe and happy Christmas!
