Stretching Post Run (Part 2)

Next area to focus on stretching after a run:

3) Standing on one leg and holding on to a wall or chair, or using no help like the below picture. The supporting leg is slightly bent, not locked, and the pelvis is Neutral (This is very important, as the pelvis likes to tilt forward in this position). Hold the stretch for at least 60 seconds each leg. Alternate between flexing the quad and pushing the foot into your hand, and exhaling and pulling the foot even tighter toward, or past, your butt.
