I forgot stretching! i must remind myself to stretch mid run. it’s not a race it’s a training run. stretch mid run and hold that stretch for 15s or more. easy does it but stretch. and stretch right after when still limber. stretch and roll after. roll the calves, ankles, legs and hips. get the adductors, hammies, glutes quads etc. get the piriformis, it band and ql! stay loose while running too. keep those shoulders loose and fluidly hinged. listen to some funky music and dance a little. groove to loosen the neck and shoulders. play air drums, bass and vibes. imagine it’s an Ethiopian dance party!
