You may have heard the debate of whether or not to stretch before running. I figured the best way to tell if it was really important or not was to watch other runners before a race. After observing a lot of ‘serious’ runners (5-7min milers) at races of various lengths – I noticed a LOT of stretching before hand and a lot of ‘pre-running’ (will blog about this later).
I often watch what they are doing and do the same, but to be honest I have no clue what I’m doing or what I’m stretching… We hope to have a one-on-one video blog with someone who can really explain in detail whats going on – but in the meantime, Heather found a great video from Runner’s world with information about stretching specifically for runners.
If anyone has something to add we would Love to Hear it!
