rules of success*
1. Warm Up and Cool Down
It's tempting to jump right into your run, but don't. A five (5) to ten (10) minute warm up raises your heart and breathing rates and gets blood flowing to muscles. Insert a few strides to wake up your nervous system and get fast-twitch muscle fibers firing. In general, the faster or farther you intend to go, the more you should warm up. Cool down after a hard run so your heart rate gradually falls. Stop abruptly and blood can pool in your legs, making you feel faint.
