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

      Hey there mgiesemann. You bring up a good point. This site should offer some instruction on the best stretches. I will work on that. For now, why don’t you try this link. It provides some good information on the proper stretches….

      I wrote this post a while back. It helped me recover from not being able to run more than a mile or so and 10 weeks later I ran a marathon in sub 3:30. I still try to do at least 2 of these workouts 3 – 4 mornings a week. Best of all they’re FREE!
