Runners World: Foot Stretch Advice
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”
- In a standing position, cross your left ankle over your right with your toes pointed down.
- Bend your right knee to increase the stretch for the top of the left foot.
- Hold for 15 to 30 seconds then repeat.
- Switch sides.
