How to Squeeze in a Stretch!

NYC Marathon Training: Day 38 I felt great after a day of rest hence several sub-8 minute miles during my journey. After I returned home, I found myself rushing my stretching a bit when I remembered what I tell my other runners.



Be sure to stop short of your home somewhere and stretch.

This will ensure that you do it. If you're like me, you get distracted by kids, phone calls and other activities when we wait until we get home.

So, pick out your stretching spot!! It could be at a particular stop sign, tree, parking lot..whatever...just do it!
