Tip #19

Stretch in the afternoon prior to the run to loosen up. The warmer the muscles the more effective the stretch. Later in the day the muscles are the warmest. Stretching a cold muscle is like pulling on a rubber band that has been in the freezer for an hour. It has the tendency to break. Same with each muscle. If you run in the morning start easy for a good 10 minutes then pick up the pace. Consider doing your stretching when the run is finished.
