Since a lot of people start up running in the month of January, I have put together a simple series of mobility exercises that should be performed for 10 minutes before each run. They will ensure that your joints are a bit more prepared for the ensuing run, and also improve your running economy if you perform them consistently. Perform the exercises in a circuit, with 10 reps each, and for at least 10 minutes. Without further ado…
