As runners, it can sometimes be hard to do the non-running stuff that keeps us healthy. But we must, if we are to stay injury-free.

Picture this: You’re running along. Everything seems ok. You feel a pulling sensation in front of your thigh. As you continue running, it gets worse, eventually forcing you to stop. And worse, the whole thing could have been prevented had you stretched.

Stretching is as important to running as running. Left untreated, tight muscles can be the difference between lining up on the starting line for a race, or watching it from the sidelines.

In this episode, I talk about:

  • Stretching for injury prevention
  • Static stretching
  • Dynamic stretching
  • Active Isolated stretching
