Most of us would rather an extra 5 minutes run than set aside five minutes at the end of the run to help the body recover after running. Avoid injury, help recovery and cooldown your body after your run by fitting in a few stretches.
If you can never remember which stretches to do, or if you know you will cut corners rushing through them, play this video at the end of your run and follow Mary as she leads you though some of the best stretches for runners.
Notice which of the stretches give relief to the body and make them a part of your running routine. Your body will thank you for it.
