The Workout You Need To Stretch Sore Achilles And Shins

If every training cycle leaves you with sore achilles or shin splints, it's time to strengthen them.

Preparing for a marathon can lead to injuries if you increase your training too fast. For those not used to long miles on hard pavement, it is easy to end up with Achilles pain and shin splints. You are left scratching your head, wondering, “Why me?”

By strengthening and stretching the calves and shins, you can keep putting one foot in front of the other and rock out your marathon. In this quick yoga segment, you will work on stretching shins, calves, Achilles and soles of the feet. This routine will keep you running. Enjoy!
