In­clud­ing the move that pre­dicts just how long you’ve got to live

It’s marathon sea­son, and re­cov­ery is half the battle. Run­ning coach Ge­orge An­der­son (in­tel­li­gen­trun­ning.com) rec­om­mends stretches to help you re­cover right af­ter and in the days fol­low­ing. Hold each stretch for 30 sec­onds and re­peat on both sides.

HIP FLEX­ORS

Stand in a lunge po­si­tion with your feet hip-width apart. With your heel off the ground, straighten your back leg un­til you feel a stretch just un­der your hip.

GLUTES

Lie on your back, place your hands on your left knee and bring it to­wards your chest. Place your right hand on the an­kle and draw your shin to­wards your left shoul­der.

HAM­STRINGS

Prop your right heel up on a sur­face that is a lit­tle lower than knee height such as a chair or bench. Flex your foot. To in­crease the stretch, bend for­ward to­ward your flexed foot.
