Finish Your Run Right with Cool Down Workouts from HOKA Runner Jared Hazen

Jared Hazen is not your typical runner. Born and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania, he ran track and cross-country in high school specializing in the 3200m. Following his graduation Jared decided to forego college and instead moved to Teton National Park to begin training. Rather than competing in 5k, 10k, or even marathons, Jared runs in ultrarunning competitions regularly going 50+ miles in events.

Now partnered with HOKA, Jared trains every day in the mountains and is looking to become one of the top runners in the world. His training regimen is intense, and after each session Jared does several cool down exercises to ease his body back to reality and help recover before his next workout. You can check out his favorites below and make sure to add them to your training.

Cooldown 1:

  • Find a step. Stand on one leg on that step with your knee slightly bent.
  • Slowly lower your other leg until your toes hit the ground.
  • Should take about 10 seconds.
  • Switch legs.

Cooldown 2:

  • Stand next to a wall with your hip almost touching.
  • Raise your inside leg in a running-type motion. Place a towel between your leg and the wall.
  • Swing your leg back and forth in a running motion keeping the towel in place.
  • Turn around and do the same thing for the other leg.

Cooldown 3:

  • Lay on your back.
  • Bring your knee to your chest.
  • Grab the back of your thigh and continue to bring it closer to your chest.
  • Do the same thing for the other leg.
