“Prime your muscles with the same movements you’ll make on your run.” — John Lofranco, Athletics Canada
ANKLE MOBILITY: Walk 20 metres on your heels, then turn back and cover the same distance walking on your toes. ALL-PLANE MOVEMENTS: Lunging forwards, backwards and diagonally prepares you to catch yourself after tripping.
STRIDES: Run for 20 seconds at a speed a little faster than the one at which you’ll be running. Walk back to your starting spot, and repeat three times.
