Pigeon stretch

This is a yoga pose that stretches out your IT band muscles and hips—so essential for runners. Kneel on hands and knees and bring your right knee forward between your hands so your outer right leg is resting on the floor with the bottom of your foot facing the left wall.

Point your left leg straight against the ground and keep the hip toward the floor. Breathe and hold. Repeat on the other side.

  1. I do not stretch, ever (unless you count a quick bending at the waist and reaching to the sky, and bouncing on my tip-toes, which takes about 30 seconds). I once hurt myself stretching and couldn’t run for 2 weeks. I always do a warm up. I know there’s proper way to stretch and a wrong way, but I’d rather not risk it anymore.
