I only stretch after and it works for me but I know others feel better if they stretch before too.
It's really important to listen to your body.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out!

Do you just do the stretching after you run, or before too?

I do these from SP after I run (usually just one of the articles/videos - not all 3)

And once a week I try to do a full hour of yoga. My favorite is the Yoga for Runners routine www.yogatoday.com/videos/953125818 at YogaToday.com www.yogatoday.com/
You do have to buy that one for $3.99 but I love it!

I just finished my second workout of Week 1. I noticed before I started that my calf muscles felt a bit tight, especially in my left leg. I thought the walking would work that out, but it hasn't. I'm thinking I need to do a better job at stretching before and after my workout.

Can anyone recommend a resource for the kinds of stretching I should be doing?

Or, do you have suggestions on what else might cause this?

Thanks!
