Starting Ju Ju’s plan: Morning all just about... - Bridge to 10K
Bridge to 10K
Hi are you starting on your own or joining the mass group that start on Saturday. You should always do a warmup of some sort whether it's the 5 minute walk, dynamic stretches or similar. Personally if it's very cold outside I like to do my warmup before leaving the house so some marching on the spot, knee raises, heel digs, lunges and squats. All the best, I'm on week 3.
Thanks for that. I thought I would get a weeks practice in before starting with group on saturday, just to make sure i can keep up!! X
That's a very good idea to do the warm up before leaving the house. Unbelievable, I have never thought about it before...
But I sometimes do the cooldown back in the house.
You learn all the tricks living in the north of Scotland, surprisingly yesterday I was back to tshirt and knee length leggings so did warm up outside. Happy running
I always aim for a 5 min warm up walk before and after if I can. good luck
I am with GTB; warm up exercises before I leave the house and then walk 5 minutes pre and post run. Non Run day strengthening exercises also a must in my book..although that may be connected to my age!! 😊
Thanks, yes my age puts me in the same bracket! I already do 3/4 gym sessions a week with lots of strength/conditioning stuff so am hoping that will keep me in track. Thanks for your feedback x
Yoohey, great you are taking the next step to 10k.
As others said, warm up before and cool down after run.
My warm up: 5minutes walk (if I have time).
Cool down: a few minutes walk and/or strengthening exercises. Plus stretch.
Hope this helps.
