Running tip #45
Many runners use legs up the wall for recovery after long runs. This practice is referred to as “inversion” in yoga, but I simply call it “Legs Up.” I think the best time to do Legs Up is the day before a race for 10 minutes. After your shake-out run and strides, find a comfortable spot (next to your friends is best) and start your watch to insure you actually keep them up for ten whole minutes.
