If you are persistent you will get it, if you are consistent you will keep it…

There are ample of advantages related to a warm up before heading out on a vigorous run. In contrast, ignoring your warm-up makes you more susceptible to pull a muscle or tear a tendon.

14 mile long run to close this 60 mile week. This was a difficult run. Even though it was beautiful out, I was tired. Every mile was a struggle but I got through it and the joy I felt after made it all worth it. Sometimes people don’t realize that more often than not it’s HARD. If I only ran when i felt like it or when it felt easy I’d probably run half the miles I do. It’s the truth! And no matter how hard a run is I always love the feeling after. The feeling of being empty, clean and just plain worn out.💪🏼 #sundayrunday #longrun #trailrun #wisconsinrunner #runitfast #runner #marathontraining #runstagram #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #runnergirl #getoutandrun #workout #womenrunning #noexcuses #irun

This post will help you learn 3 best warm-up stretches you can indulge in before going out for your next run!

Start with a brisk walk

Walking helps warm up your muscles before the real deal. Starting with a brisk walk will get you into the ease of motion while firing up your body system

Stepping lunge

For stepping lunge, you have to stand with your legs shoulder-width apart and then bend the left knee while lunging ahead on your right knee. Stretch as far as you feel comfortable and then repeat with right leg backward.

Leg Flexor stretch

This method includes stretching your left leg at 90-degree angle while standing parallel with your left arm forward. Try to extend your calf to create a straight leg.

WE ARE ALL BEGINNERS/ I very often see my #yogastudent s repeating my own path before my own #yogateacher s teachings. We all struggle to hear attentively the instructions, we struggle to really see demonstrations, we hardly tune into our bodies to feel the #asana, details are not perceived. We also assume merits are ripen to enjoy and any pose can blossom without #yogapractice. I like to compare this #sadhana to the Buddhist ones. If you read Red Tara's sadhana you will see there are so many details on the way she sits, the shape and ornaments of her hair and clothes, objects she holds in her hands…all to keep your mind so deeply connected busy visualizing…that…that…suddenly you become one with the deity! That's what the #mythology of each #asana truly is. And that ultimate #mindcontrol is what #yoga is about… . . Just to say #handtobigtoepose is the #yogapose feature of this week's classes. A simple but complex, straight foward but also elegant asana to meditate on. In this case less is much more. #yogabeginner #whatisyoga #yogini #yogalove #yogaismorethanasana #discipline #yogaphilosophy #yogaandbuddhism #hamstringstretch #hipopener #yogadaily #yogaeverywhere #standingpose #yogabasics #souportofit #utthitahastapadangustasana #yogabalance #legstretch #flexibility #offthematyoga
