Warming Up & Down

How long should my warm up take before I run?

Your warm up should last for at least 10 minutes so that your body is fully prepared for your main running session. A warm up should involve some light and progressive cardiovascular exercise that gently raises your heart rate, makes you perspire slightly and primes your muscles for later activity – so brisk walking and jogging is ideal.

Include some all-round mobility exercises at the end of your warm up, which will ensure that your joints are lubricated and will make them function more efficiently.
