Not long now until the busiest 10k, half marathon and full marathon running season starts to get under way in Leeds and so it’s important for you keen runners to remember that long periods of time running often leads to a shortening of the muscles that flex the hip, which in turn can lead to back pain as well as a less efficient running stride, so try this move, it stretches hip flexors and hamstrings at the same time.

During the spring and summer months there are an increasing amount of marathons, half marathons, and outdoor events that have become really popular for a lot of people that I treat, it’s human nature to rise to a challenge and this fuels the desire to push oneself a bit further, even the most sedentary individuals are getting the urge to do more exercise and start doing the occasional 10k race or the increasingly popular Park Run events that usually take place on Saturday mornings across the country (and now globally)....
