Beginner's guide to running, part 4

You need strength- And you need flexibility. So, you work out and you stretch. My best tip on both these activities is paying attention to what you are stretching and which muscles you're working. I see too many just stretching and lifting weights without any concepts on what they are working.

I had had most my problems with knees and hips. So, I've concentrated on those areas. I've also spent time on back and mid section. Mostly because of the stress on these areas from long distance running on hard materials.

Today, I'm a bit ashamed to admit, I don't stretch very much. Mostly because I don't have any problems anymore. But when I feel something, or when I got the problem with my knee after the marathon, I stretch and I workout a lot. Until I feel all well again.
