Yesterday I called a recovering runner, just to check in and see how he was doing, because he had done the Fast Track Challenge 2 months ago.
He’s doing great. He has recovered and gotten past his injury.
He said he learned a lot in the Challenge and has applied it to his training.
He’s on track for running ultra-marathons this year. He has a coach. Training is in full swing with no limitation from the injury and got him into the Fast Track challenge.
Something he said on that call actually kind of shocked me.
I asked him, “Is there anything that you wish you could have done differently if you went back?”
He answered, “Yeah, I would have called you sooner for a consultation.”

Many runners I talk to on a second opinion consultation webcam call really want to know which stretches will help them. Specifically, which two or three stretches will help the most.
What are the most valuable stretches you can do after a running injury?
