I learned the hard way that stretching after a run is a Good Thing. And that a foam roller is for masochists. However, I also came to wonder if some of my aches were actually accentuated (or even caused) by too much stretching. So I would like to have advice on what stretches you real runners actually do after a run and how many of them. And with or without stretches, do you at times dread having to kneel, because of the ensuing pain (getting up is not too joyful either).
I am finding vigorous walks, during a non-running period, are very helpful and the knees agree.
