Flexibility is one of the most vital ingredients to optimal performance – yet is also the most ignored aspect of fitness by runners. Lack of flexibility and muscle and joint tightness can lead to decreased running economy, aches, pains and injuries. The great news is you don’t have to invest much time to seek great benefits. It’s all about getting in a little flexibility work regularly.
Tip: You’ll need a foam roller and a comfortable place to lie down to perform these exercises.
