I haven't been stretching, but this reminded me I need to start. Good question!

Thank you so much everybody. As a result of your comments I have altered my routine to include stretching. I'm sure it will serve me well.

I stretch after when the muscles are warm. Ditto here, it feels good.

I walk slower during the first few minutes of my walk and warm up my muscles. I do stretch afterward because if I don't, I have twitching muscles and it is a little strange. It also increases my flexibility to stretch when my muscles are warmed up.

I need to do both, but I stretch after. Stretching prevents tendonitis.

Walkers-do you stretch before or after your walk?

One small step.
