I've started running/jogging after a 17 year lay off. I mainly run on canalside paths, tracks and grassy undulations near Leek, Staffs. I wear a pair of Salomon Cross max 2's and find they seem ok for door to trail stuff. Before and after the run I usually do hamstring stretches, calf stretches and thigh stretches for about 5-10 minutes. Is there anything else I should be doing/wearing to minimise muscle stiffness? I was 50 yrs old last month, but have a reasonable basic fitness from rowing, cycling and swimming. I'm into my 3rd week of running now, and usually run for between 20 and 25 mins.
