4 things to do before your next run

By SerenaFit in Fitness

If you’re running, jogging or power walking …⁣

Be sure you’re doing these few things to get your body ready for your next run!! ⁣

🏃🏻‍♀️Walk it, jog it, run it: Build into a run so your body can work up to it. Start by walking at a fast pace, then hit a slow jog and then try for the run. Keep your core engaged.⁣ I love power walking between mailboxes, then running every to other one. It’s fun!

🙋🏻‍♀️Stretch: My favorites are forward folds, inner thigh, quads + zombie walks. Don’t just hit the pavement. Be smart and warm up. I’d even consider doing a mini ab routine before your next cardio set to be sure your creating stability throughout the body. This will help prevent injury. 

🍌Fuel up for a cardio burn: This means eating quality carbs. My go-to is a banana b/c it has just enough natural glucose (sugar) to fuel up for a nice 30-45 minute run and it has potassium which can prevent cramping. ⁣Think about consuming around 20g of carbs 30-minutes prior to your run. 

💪🏼Use your arm power!: The faster you pump those arms, the faster your legs will move! One of my track friends at Rider University told me that years ago and I will never forgot it. Keep your hands in a loose grip too so you’re not holding tension in the upper body. Shoulders down and away from the ears, core tight and keep looking ahead b/c after all, that’s where you’re going 🙂 ⁣
