Post-Endurance Training Refresh

Vinyasa Flow | By Tiffany Cruikshank on Aug 24 2012
This is a quick refresher for the lower body after an endurance activity of some sort whether it be a race like a marathon or triathalon or just a long training run. This practice will help you ease in and gently relengthen the tissues while increasing the circulation to help flush the lactic acid out of the tissues to speed recover. This could also be used as a more mellow yin style hip opening class for anyone.

    Tiffany please do an hour long post run class, (level 1 or 1/2 nothing to hard after a run) there are only a few classes out the 2500 plus classes that are specific to us runners. I, as well as I'm sure, many others would appreciate it. Thanks!

    Feels great after a race, especially for my spine:) thank you Tiffany! Putting this in my favorites.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Nov 12th, 2013
      Great to hear Hui, hope the race went well… ;)

    This felt great after my quick run this morning and getting ready for a long day on my feet. I always worry that running will take away any flexibility i have in my hamstrings, but this class definitely helps :) thank you
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Sep 13th, 2013
      Glad it's working Desiree! :)

    Thank you for this. I finally was able to get my fiancé do do yoga after 5 years of resistance. He said that he would love to do yoga again after running, but only if you're teaching class. I love all of your challenging classes and take them as often as I can at home. Thanks again!
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Sep 13th, 2013
      Aw, I love that, glad I could help! :)

    Just what was needed after a long run followed by tennis. Thanks!

    Hi Tiffany! Cannot say enough for this one..I'm training for a marathon and managed to pull a hamstring in my regular power class right when I upped my mileage. I've since been looking for more static classes I can do while running 6 days/wk and anything else like this would be so welcome! (this one was esp great since it didn't kill the hamstrings- still a scary issue for me). All your classes are awesome…. Thank you! Anna.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Sep 13th, 2013
      Glad it's helping Anna! :)

    This class is a perfect treat after my seattle rock n roll full marathon yesterday.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Jul 4th, 2013
      Love that! Hope you had a good race. :)
  • Hope Eberhardt     May 31st, 2013

    I just did this immediately following one of my long runs training for an upcoming half marathon. I did not have the usual tightness in my hips, back, or hamstrings that I usually do. And, I usually stretch a lot and foam roll. This practice is AMAZING! Thank you, Tiffany!
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Apr 27th, 2013
      Great to hear Shireen, glad its helping! :)
    • yogagal      Apr 23rd, 2013
      I too do a post run sequence followed by Melt foam roller +/or yoga therapy balls. Is it my imagination or did this really work better??? Doing it again after run tonight to see.
      • Tiffany Cruikshank     Apr 27th, 2013
        Nice, great to hear.... :)
  • Michael Jacobs     Mar 24th, 2013
    Excellent! Did this the day after my last 20-miler of marathon training - this was just what I needed, especially for those tight hips! Thanks, Kara (Michael's wife)
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Mar 29th, 2013
      Nice, glad it helped Kara. :)
  • Anthony Melillo     Mar 22nd, 2013
    I just used this practice as a precursor for my upcoming golf game. My legs feel "young". I'll tell you how it goes. Thanks.

    Your book is interesting. I am on my fifth day of a detox diet. Feeling great. We need more knowledge in the field of "wellness".

    Namaste
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Mar 29th, 2013
      Thanks Anthony, glad it was helpful and love that you're enjoying my book as well! ;)

    Amazing class Tiffany, this is the best recovery class after a long run. Thanks

  • Isabel Aepli     Oct 27th, 2012
    I found other post workout recovery classes sometimes too dynamic after a long tough work out. This one feels so good. Perfect, thank you Tiffany! Alain, Netherlands
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Nov 4th, 2012
      Perfect, glad it's helpful. ;)
  • Chris Maertz (Personal)     Oct 24th, 2012

    Thanks guys, glad you're enjoying it!
  • Lauren Seaman     Sep 15th, 2012
    Tiffany - you are the world's best-kept secret! Can't wait to eventually attend training with you. I teach yoga (on the side) in Honolulu, have an athletic background, and do your classes daily. They are the best classes out there! Thanks for being awesome!
  • Daisy Pusparini     Sep 14th, 2012
    love it!! Thank you Tiffany :)
  • Mary Trepelas     Sep 1st, 2012
    I did 18 miles today, training for an upcoming marathon. This practice really fit the bill--wonderful and so very relaxing! I will come back to this one again and again! Thank you, Tiffany!
  • yogagal      Sep 1st, 2012
    Great after a long run on a hot day. Nice to be given permission to take care. Thank you
  • Parricia Cluss     Sep 1st, 2012
    Never think about stretches using the wall. Really enjoyed it. Will incorporate this into future yoga practices. Thank you :)
  • Victor Caceres     Aug 30th, 2012
    Very relaxing against the wall.
