Question on stretching

Hello hipsters, after 3 years of my RTHR i feel lucky to be running a daily 5k to stay in shape, soon I am planning to train for a half marathon and so on for the full marathon, the question I post for anyone who wants to answer is how much stretching should i be doing, my therapist suggested to stretch the hip flexors, ham strings and rectus femurs before and after running, is there any other suggestion for this?, and any restrictions on the stretches? so far i have not had any problem with any movement so far

 

thank you for your help… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)

Hip Replacement wear
