Runners World: Foot Stretch Advice

July 9, 2013 by Lisa

Tracy recommends the following foot stretch after running or cycling:

“Stretching the muscles that enable ankle dorsi-flexion is often overlooked, but key for runners. Tightness here can cause long term problems such as Plantar Fasciitis”

  1. In a standing position, cross your left ankle over your right with your toes pointed down.
  2. Bend your right knee to increase the stretch for the top of the left foot.
  3. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds then repeat.
  4. Switch sides.
