Warming up before working out isn’t just something your PE teacher in 7th grade repeated over and over again. It’s actually really necessary to having a great workout, and stay injury free. I’ve been running inside on the treadmill more lately, as it’s winter now and cold where I live. I figure being warmer is better for my muscles. But today was 62 degrees, so I wanted to get some sun and enjoy a run around the park. I was pushing the pace pretty good for the first mile or more when I realized, I need to slow down and warm up more. After about another 3/4 of a mile, I remembered and realized something all at the same time. I realized that I felt so good, I wanted to do another lap or two and I hadn’t even finished half of the first lap. I mean I was going slower, why shouldn’t I feel good right. But I noticed that I felt really loose, warmed up and ready to go. I literally felt like I could run 10 miles! But the thing that I remembered at the same time was probably even more important.
