Reminder: Run then Stretch
Something that I think about all the time is how damn tight my legs are. I can run a 5k in about 18 or 19 minutes, but I can't touch my toes. There is something wrong with that. Don't get me wrong, I stretch, however I have made the mistake of stretching before warming my legs up and ended up getting injured by something I thought would help me. So now I work my way into my run with a slow pace, then pick it up after about 5-10 minutes. Then after my run I do my stretch. Life is good, even thought I still can't touch my toes.
