I've just started week 5.
I do my run first thing in the morning, about 5.45am.
For the past few runs, as I come back to the house the dog is waiting for me in the hall, with her lead.
I can take a hint and since I've not felt utterly knackered I've been taking her straight out. We walk quite briskly but the morning walk is only about 40-45 mins.
I'm counting that as my cool down and must admit, not really bothering with stretches after my run.
Can I get away with this, or should I be stretching once I return from the dog walk? REALLY want to avoid the risk of injury.
