Hi Boon

A slow walk, followed by some light stretching perhaps, but don't overdo the old fashioned "touch the toes" routine. That kind of static stretching might even increase your chances of injury, and it's now recommended that a better warm up is a gradual start (walking), followed by very light stretching in movement, like swinging your legs and so forth.

For a sprint session, you would need more, but for a jog, you probably don't.

Good luck
