Strength & Conditioning is a huge part of physical preparation. Have you ever heard the term 'stronger runners run faster for longer'? Well its's true, S&C has been scientifically proven to aid performance. It is also an important tool when it comes to injury prevention.
Yoga and other similar forms of exercise can be extremely useful. Think of it as stretching whilst meditating. As a runner your relationship with your breath is key. Running yoga is a good way to improve both your flexibility and mobility whilst working on your breath.
Recovery is an important part pf physical preparation. Both stretching and foam rolling will aid recovery. Static stretching post run will help contracted muscles return to their original state and foam rolling will massage the muscles reducing pain and muscle soreness.
