Warming Up

In track you need to warm up before you actually start events or start running. Below are a few ways to warm up if you want to start becoming a track runner:

If you start out too fast, you run the risk of pulling a muscle, tweaking a tendon, bone, or joint, or getting into a pace that you can't sustain. The result? You end up slowing down and burning out before you're done with your workout.  The worst part is that you're likely to end your run feeling exhausted, discouraged, and dreading your next workout.
A smart warmup gives your muscles, bones, and joints a chance to loosen up; it gradually and gently brings up your heart rate and makes it easier to get into the rhythm you want to sustain so you can run and finish feeling exhilarated and energized enough to go longer, and excited to set out for your next workout.
Walking is a great way to warm up for a big or short run.
Dynamic Stretching is great because you can let your body be more flexible and able to not pull a muscle.
Before a run start doing these type of jogs and stretches:
Skipping

Weave Step (Grape Vine) The grape vine is a stretch where you put on foot over and behind the other like a vine movement.

Backwards Jogging Just a nice backwards jog can get you ready for a good run!

Butt Kicks Kicking your but when you run allows you legs to stretch and makes you use energy to bring your foot off the gound.

Side Step / Shuffle Move your feet infront of the other not like the grape vine but side to side making a smooth stretch for your legs
