Mango Go For 42 Challenge Week #4 Preparing for physical activity is important!
Did you know that it is important to warm up your body before any physical activity? Warming up prepares your body physically and mentally for exercising, and also helps prevent injuries. If you are going for a run, you can warm up with some light jogging followed by some stretching. So lace up your sneakers, “warm up”, get a friend and go for a run. It’s Go for 42 time!
