    I have never noticed a difference in how I feel between stretching and not stretching when I go running for cross-country, which is usually a mixture of lower-impact jogging, 200 to 800 meter sprints, and long tempo runs. However, it does seem to produce something of a psychological benefit in that I feel safer and looser after I have stretched.


    Perhaps you should do yoga, and then you won't have to worry either way.

      I believe anaerobic workout requires welldone warmups. I have read that stretching can be counter productive. The warmup should also contain overall exercise and specific to te workout.


      You were doing slow running and not sprints so you would be helped by stretching. Even stretching requires some warmup.
