Stretching before a run is a big no-no, so after you come inside or hop off the treadmill, there's no better time to hit the floor and move through a few yoga poses. This yoga sequence has your tight hamstrings, hips, quads, lower back, and shoulders in mind.

Move through this 16-pose sequence on the right side and then repeat on the left. Holding each pose for five breaths, or about 30 seconds, it should take you about 16 minutes to complete. Think about how relaxed and open you'll feel afterward!
