Video: Stretch Your Shins!

Lucky you guys… I made a new video!

Jacqueline is a reader, fellow runner, and a friend of mine from college. We used to run together on side-by-side treadmills every day after class. Oh, the memories.

She suggested I figure out a way to show how I warm up and stretch my shins to prevent/rehabilitate the shin splits that just rudely returned.

SO, here you go. A 2 minute video. Go watch – it’s fun AND educational. πŸ˜‰

and, as an added bonus, you’ll see Chloe’s FIRST trick she finally just learned.

Don’t forget to enter my GIVEAWAY for a free hand painted SHOT GLASS with your own personal design! You get home made Maggie Mix with the glass, too. πŸ˜‰

Here’s to healthy and happy shins for all. Mine are already feeling better! πŸ˜€

Today is Friday for me. I’m taking a three day weekend and scooting to North Carolina and then spending a fun weekend D.C.! Wahooo!

  1. girl this is genius!!!!! and the intro was hilarious too! =) love it!

    I take a tooon of spin classes each month – do you think I should stretch first? or will that loosen my leg muscles up too much and cause injury b/c spinning is so high impact?

    i’d love to hear what you think! ❀

    • it’s such a low-impact warmup/stretch itself, I don’t think it could hurt any workout, high or low impact! I’d definitely recommend it. πŸ˜‰

  2. I definitely always stretch before and after running! It always helps my body feel so much better afterwards! And foam rolling really helps too!! πŸ™‚

  3. Totally love the video intro! Breaking stuff happpens.
    I gave myself shin splints in high school from 20 minutes straight of barefoot dancing to Cotton-Eye Joe – I was practicing at my job for a DJ dancer company (the kind that comes to weddings). Woops πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely have to try these stretches out, hope yours are getting better!
