Many of you have been increasing the length of your walks recently leading up to the Bath Beat. We are also heading into the Spring and Summer, a popular time for walking holidays. But how much thought have you given to stretching?

Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage.
