Feelgood Fitness: Stretches for Runners

flexed feet

2. Ankle Rotations

Sit on the floor with your back straight, your legs straight out in front of you and palms on the floor beside you. Flex your right foot and rotate it at the ankle, being careful not to move the rest of your leg. Do 15 clockwise rotations, then 15 counter clockwise rotations. The idea here is to focus on moving your foot through the whole range of motion. Repeat this with the left foot.
