Does stretching before running prevent injuries? Scientists say NO. I often get defensive when other people ask if I stretch before I run, because I don’t. More research to back me up!

My physio says to, but I don’t. I do walk for a few minutes to warm up.
Beyond that, my answer is ‘I’m generally warmed up after the first 5km.’

Same here–I walk a bit, then get to the task at hand. I walk afterward, though, making sure to stretch while I do so.
Also, no one likes those people who stretch and make a show of it. There’s a lady at my gym who does it on the treadmill and I want to smack her.
