Well - my flexibility is truly shocking.

Looking for some pointers in what people in the land of Fetch do to improve this. Wondered if anyone can recommend any video clips from youtube/vimeo and the like that show short flexibility routines that I could try and following on a daily (ish) basis. Or if not video clips any suggested routines / workouts that I can follow.

There are 2 reasons that have promoted me to actually want to start a flexibility regeme - 1) to improve my running and 2) My physio said my flexibility was really very poor and that I needed to sort it out or could have problems later in life!! (visit to physio for calf problems - that for the moment seem to be resolved).

many thanks :-)

Simple moves that really help - the beginner's 10 minute miracle every morning and after runs helps me no end.

Not an expert though, others may have better advice

For more yoga, there is also yogamazing...he does free podcasts on iTunes. They are video ones and really good too. Occasionally he has a yoga for runners one...I've seen a couple over the last few years.
