"Sherry Lowe-Bernie, owner of Personalizing Pilates suggests doing this stretch: Great for runners, this stretch lengthens the calf and hamstring muscles. The safest way is to begin on your hands and knees. Tuck your toes toward you knees and lift your hips up and back. Let your head hang down looking and your knes and press your heels into the floor. Hold for six deep, slow breaths, carefully exhaling to allow your muscles to relax. To increase the stretch, Press your buttocks further up and back. When finished, bend your knees and lower them to the floor. This stretch should never be done immediately after a run because it's unsafe to drop your head below your heart when your heart rate is elevated."
