Like every other runner I know, stretching is a challenge. In footbal training, the management culture in the game meant that we just did it because we were shouted into it, but running at my level is a more individual thing and if I don't bully myself no-one else will. It's got to make sense. It's got to make walking to the bathroom in the morning easier. It might just prevent some injury.
I put together a rudimentary programme (3 standing, 3 sitting – all leg, waist and lower back groups covered) and started it in training for Isle of Wight but lost it when I had my blip in April. When I stretched the day after the IoW run, I was shocked at how much shorter my musles had become. Started again today. I'll let you know how I get on.
