    Wait stretching makes no sense?

    Does this mean Yoga is a scam?

    The pseudo-scientific "woo" claims about Yoga's benefits and "energy flows" and what not are most definitely a scam.

    I'm sure silentstriker would like to weigh in on this.

    stretching makes sense if you want to increase your flexibility. You do mma, right? You probably want flexibility for high kicks etc.

    Does it prevent injury as part of a warmup routine? Nope.

    Does it prevent injury at all? Probably not.

    Also a big believer in active recovery. During marathon training I'd do my long runs on a Sunday then hit the swimming pool on the Monday for 100 lengths.

    I don't know how true it is, but I've been told to think of your body and a rubber band that's been put in the freezer. If you start stretching it immediately it's going to snap, but if you just jog around and do dynamic warmups it'll be at it's stretchy best in no time.

    So in order to procrastinate today, I looked up stretching and dynamic warmups and active recovery.

    Quite insightful. Pretty glad to learn that I have mostly been doing the right things. Really need to get more yoga/stretching into my schedule somehow though.

    Yeah for both the Edinburgh half and the Berlin marathon, my hotel was about a mile away from the start line so I just ran at an easy pace from my hotel to the start line for both events. For races that long the first couple of miles works quite nicely as a warmup as well.

    If you're doing movements which require certain mobility to perform properly then you have to stretch first.

    Yoga isn't just stretching, it strengthens postural muscles etc

    Disagree. I'm pretty sure it helps reduce the risk of ripping and tearing during childbirth. Good for the pelvic floor, apparently.

    Can anyone suggest some good running shoes to use on such hard surfaces?
    So naturally after making this post, I go running on road/concrete, and after about 5 Km my right ankle starts to ache.

    Walking around with a slight limp now. Sigh.
