I have some questions about running.
1. What’s the optimal way to warm up?
2. I keep reading contradictory things about stretching. What should I actually be doing?
3. Do I seriously have to buy real running shoes or can I keep using the crappy ones I have now?
4. What time of day do you run?
5. What’s your favorite song(s) to run to?
6. Should you eat before or after you run? Does it matter?
