Hal Higdon – Running training, tips, stretches… huge resource from a well-known running guru. (Thanks, Dayna!)

    I purchased the “Yoga for Runners” app on my iPhone this week ($1.99) and, so far, I really like it. I have dabbled in yoga here and there but am by no means a yogi 🙂 In fact, I never stick with it because flexbility isn’t my strength and I always think it’s too darn hard!

    However, this app has simple (yet effective) pre-run and post-run yoga workouts to stretch all of the key muscles you use while running/walking. I’ve used it for the last few days and I really feel like it’s making a difference – I feel more loose when I run and I’m not nearly as sore the next day.

    Check it out if you’re looking for a better stretch routine!
