Dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the foot are key elements of a runner's body mechanics. But did you know there is a whole series of exercises performed on the Pilates Reformer which addresses exactly this? Bonus points: the positioning of the body on the Reformer while performing this series recruits all the core muscles as well as hamstrings and other thigh muscles. Add to that the deep regular breathing patterns of the true Pilates method, and you have a dynamite workout specific to improving your run time.
