We want to thank New Balance for partnering with Runners’ Lounge on last week’s giveaway.  New Balance gave away their newest trail shoe, the 910

This Week's Giveaway Partner: Stretching Book and DVD by Brian Dorfman

One of the longest standing debates in running is about stretching.  Does it help or hinder?  Stretch before or after running? Or both?

What are the best stretches?  How long do I hold a stretched position?  Does stretching simply make me feel better, reduce injuries or does it improve running performance?


Stretching BD

In the course of working on The Ultimate Runner, we’ve met up with Brian Dorfman, a leading expert in the field of stretching.  Brian’s knowledge of muscle, movement, health and injury, all bundled together as an instructor and coach, stands apart from many experts on stretching.  He has worked with elite to ordinary athletes, and always teaching as well as helping them improve. 

This week’s giveaway is his DVD and book on flexibility and stretching.  The winner of these resources will have access to some valuable instruction on how to get the most out of stretching for prevention and improvement.

To be eligible for this week’s book and DVD giveaway, share a response in the forum to some of these questions:

What has been your experience with stretching and running?  Do you stretch?  Don’t bother?  Hate it? Enjoy it?  Don’t believe in stretching?  Know you should but don’t take time?  Know you should, but don’t know how to stretch correctly?

Just leave your response in the forum to be eligible to win.  The winner will be announced on Monday, 9/28.

"Know you should but don’t take time?" really sums up my experience with running and stretching. More and more, especially as I increase my mileage in the cool fall weather, I force myself to lightly stretch before I run and stretch after runs, especially long runs. I can really tell the different the morning after.

All the time, every day, first thing when I wake in the a.m. & the last thing before bed. On my feet at work 12.5-13 hours so I must. It helps me move & keep the kinks out. I sleep better & I feel I have fewer injuries.

Pakistani television news channels broadcast pictures of wrecked cars and pick-up trucks damaged in the blast, which took place near rows of shops.
