If you can spend 6 minutes a day to help you prevent getting injured, make you run faster, and overall just be a more consistent happier runner would you do it! I willing to bet you would. As we know the single larger factor in success as a runner is consistency. You can have a very talented runner that doesn't or can't run consistently and in the end they will not reach their true potential where as a runner that can keep running on a regular basis with the right training and support can reach the highest levels. One of the biggest challenges to running consistently is avoiding injury and while there are many items that can help with this such as replacing running shoes on time, sleeping well, and increasing mileage safely but there is one that I believe is the best bang for your buck. With this 6 minute routine you not only relax and lengthen tired muscles but you create flexibility and strength to prevent some of the most common running injuries. Many of you have suffered through shin splints, runners knee, tight calves etc but did you know that most of the problems that lead to these injuries come from much higher on a runners body. Its all about the hips! Make the hips stronger and more flexible with a better range of motion and you will protect yourself from a whole host of injuries. The routine I'm speaking of is the Myrtle routine and needs to be done after not before every run so leave time after your run to fit this in. The good news again is that it only takes 6 minutes for all these benefits! Make sure you review the video and at the beginning take time to do ti the correct way even if it takes a bit longer. Best of luck with all your running dreams and goals. Comment if you have any questions.
