Stretching to Conclusions
I am an avid fan of stretching. Yoga, a very stretchy exercise by nature, is one of my favorite ways to workout. I once spent an entire summer stretching for a few minutes before bed just so I could touch my toes. This was no small feat. It took me a month to touch my toes. Not to mention, I always feel better after any workout, especially running, if I get in a good stretch. So I was surprised to learn in this NY Times article, that it might not really be doing me any physical good.
