Post-Run Rituals: Cooling Down

Sports Science Tips for Runners

Cool Down

 

Your cool down should be fairly consistent from workout to workout, with similar  drill design as your warm up. This is the case for both long easy runs or if you did speed intervals on the track.

 

Cooling down with a 5 minute jog before you stretch is effective and great, but doing a few hops and skips (power speed drills) winds down and settles the nervous system a bit too.  

 

These drills also reinforce technique in a tired body, and remember, when you are tired, good technique is what will carry you through to the finish.
