Workout Focus: Beginner, Awareness
Est. Time: 20-30 minutes
Coach Mallory's Notes: Don't forget your upper body during warm up. Arm hugs and arm swings will loosen up your chest, shoulders, and back.
For an added bonus: Pair your workout with this 15-minute guided awareness run to get a feel for how your body and surroundings feel during your run or walk.
Dynamic Stretches! When stretching before a workout like a walk or run, it's important to keep your movements dynamic (moving) rather than static (held).
Keep your movements slow and controlled; like high knee grabs (lift one knee at a time and hold the knee at the top for just a second each time). Then consider adding quicker movements as your body warms up.
Don't forget your upper body too. Arm hugs and arm swings will loosen up your chest, shoulders, and back.
10x (1 min run, 2 min walk)
Slow your pace and walk for a couple minutes. Consider adding in some more stretches! Remember, dynamic stretches are good both before and after your walk/run, while static stretches are best left for after.
