What are some good lower leg and foot stretches for runners?

by admin on November 22, 2009

I can stretch my shins and calves pretty well, but my inner calf, ankles and the bottoms of my feet seem prone to a few aches after I run. I strongly believe some good stretches before and after would help. Do you have any to suggest? By the way, I don’t think its a shoe problem, but I will look into that just to be sure. Thanks!

You can use a strap to stretch your foot and ankles along with your lower legs. Try sitting and using a strap, belt, or towel over your foot. To massage the foot you can roll a tennis ball under your bare foot while sitting in a chair.
