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.
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.
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.
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.
