Warm-ups are an essential part of running. They prepare our bodies for the stress we are about to put them under when we run.
Generally, runners warm up before a training session or a race. Some of them learn how to warm up by trial and error, and others from their coaches.
As long as you don’t get injured and you are improving as a runner stick with whatever warm-up routine you have, there is no right or wrong way of doing it.
But when it comes to pre-race warm up, it’s a whole different story.
When we train we warm up and then jog for a few miles before the real workout (be it a long run or a speed workout).
But when racing you start at full speed, so your regular warm-up is no longer useful. That is one of the main reasons why people get injured after a race.
So, over the years, I have developed a pre-race warm-up routine that pretty much guarantees you will not get injured after a race.
It focuses on lubricating your joints and preparing your body for the stress of running full speed from the beginning.
