Warm Up and Cool Down for Distance Runners
While most runners don't like warm up and cool down sessions, these pre and post run workouts are an important part of your training programs. A proper warm up will prepare your joints and muscles for the more strenuous activity to follow. A cool down will safely get your body and muscles safely back down to normal operating temperatures.
