Stretching can be VERY bad for your health (Read 3519 times)

    Uh...That was me at Percy. Quit stalking. And all my running socks were dirty that day.

    I don't half-ass anything

      you DID notice the cotton socks didn't you??Roll eyes

        I was too busy noticing the lack of a Garmin or RoadID band.

          Is there a link somewhere to the Pfitz stretches - perhaps a good routine to start for the new year.

           

          Just started the Pfitz stretches myself, but I don't have a swiss ball....thank goodness.

            obviously not a real runner. . . .  what kind of moron wears bunched up cotton socks like that?

            Rofl, I do!

             

            Maybe not THAT long and bunched up though. 

            They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that. "If I am still standing at the end of the race, hit me with a Board and knock me down, because that means I didn't run hard enough" If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. "Don't fear moving slowly forward...fear standing still."

                I wear socks like that every day - < $1 per pair.  Once upon a time I wore them for 150+ miles straight in a 24 hour race - 1 pair of socks for all 24 hours.  No blisters, no hot spots ... same pair of shoes also.  As long as they are not bunched up in the shoe area.

                 

                I won 12 pair of drymax socks in a contest - I guess they were nice, but I go 4-6 runs out of a $10-$20 pair of socks.  So I guess I am the cheap moron who wears cotton socks ... But to me all of you have been brain washed into pampering your feet and have gotten soft.

                I'm back!

                  I don't believe so. They're new in the 2nd edition of Advanced Marathoning. I do them twice / week (skipping the swiss ball stretches, fortunately), along with Pfitz's strength exercises twice / week and core exercises thrice / week.

                      Yes, it's so distracting learning a new way to stretch.  From kunland.

                      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                                You have all missed the point.  Stretching like that is not good for the lamp-post
