The 10-Point, 10-Minute Pre-Run Warm-Up to Beat Common Running Injuries

Prevent common running injuries with this 10-exercise, 10-minute pre-run warm-up.

Many runners lace up their shoes and immediately start running. This lets you get right into it, but it may take a toll on your body and cause nagging injuries.

Running without warming up can cause a slew of problems, including muscle pulls, wear and tear on the joints and ligament damage. Such problems might not manifest themselves in a sudden injury. They more typically just gradually wear you down.
