Although this discussion is focused on runners it’s applicable to all endurance sports athletes.

Coach Jason Fitzgerald talks to Sage Rountree, a yoga expert, running and triathlon coach, author, and accomplished runner. She’s worked with Olympians, NBA and NFL players, and collegiate athletes.

Sage shares her knowledge on topics such as:

  • Should runners practice yoga?
  • How important is it to be super flexible – or not?
  • What kinds of yoga practice are most beneficial for runners?
  • When should you schedule your practice in your week and in your season for the best outcomes?

There’s a lot of excellent and freely-given coaching advice in this podcast. To dive deeper you might want to purchase one of Sage’s books on yoga for athletes, or go to Jason’s website StrengthRunning.com to buy a custom training plan designed for your race goals and current fitness level.
