1. Double Wall Stretch
This is an excellent way to loosen up your calves and tendons after a run! Stand arms distance from a wall and place your palms against the wall. Bend your elbows and let your body tilt forward at the ankle until you feel a gentle stretch in your calves. Hold this stretch for 10 deep breaths, then repeat.
Next, bend your knees slightly, making sure your knees don’t extend past your toes. Bend your elbows again, tilting your body toward the wall until you feel a nice stretch in the backs of your ankles. Hold for 10 deep breaths, then repeat.
