Hey Matan,

Great question.  Do a small warmup of 1-2 miles before doing drills.  Then work into your drills with the easiest ones first and the most complex/dynamic ones last. 2 sets of 3-6 drills should have you ready to roll.  Do a few shoulder/hip/ankle rolls to bring the pulse back down, and then you go for your run.

If you have a hard workout, don’t forget to do 4-6 strides after the drills or you’ll be sucking wind!
