What Is Your Favorite Post Run Exercise?

We are in the midst of creating a post-run routine for young, old, fast, and middle-of-the-packers. This is merely a preliminary list, and we would like to know if you think we are missing anything that works well for you.

As we have mentioned on numerous occasions, the ideal training day would be to run a Long Run in the morning, a tempo at lunch, and an interval session before dinner. Unfortunately, we cannot recover fast enough from a hard session to adhere to such a routine. The following exercises will help you recover faster so you can workout harder the next time you head out the door.

1. Strides
2. Running Drills

Address Form & Speed in 10 Minutes

3. Hurdle Mobility

4. Core

5. “Strength”
– Heel Walks
– Walk-Aparts with Band
– Deep Squats
– Kick Backs with Band
– Eccentric Calf Raises
– Reverse Plank
– Simple upper body exercises

6. Active Isolated Stretching
7. Trigger Point
8. Foam Roll
9. Self-Massage
