The hardest part of the run isn’t the last few miles, it’s when the alarm goes off and you have to remember why you set that alarm and why you want this. Get up. Shoes on. Run.

'People need to be aware that EDNOS sufferers aren't just being a 'bit funny' about food. But because it's not as well-known as anorexia or bulimia, some sufferers don't feel people understand or take it seriously. That needs to change….BMI is used as a crude way of rationing services and has no clinical basis'

WHY WARMING UP IS IMPORTANT? 
It has been proven by science that warming up helps lessen injuries and aid recovery. Purpose of Warm-up is to Gradually Raise:
The Heart Rate
Blood Pressure 
Oxygen Consumption
Elasticity and Heat of the Active Muscles 
Warm-ups also: 
Release Adrenaline
Increase Dilation of Blood Vessels
Enable Oxygen in the Blood to Travel at a Greater Speed
Increase the Production of Synovial Fluid in the Joints- This reduces friction in the joints which allows a more efficient movement
Increase the Speed of Muscle Contractions
Increase the Induction of Nerve Impulses
Warm-ups will also help psychologically by preparing us for the task at hand and getting us involved in the process. 
WHY COOLING DOWN IS IMPORTANT?
The main goal of a cool down is to decrease the heart rate. 
Cooldowns Help Prevent: 
Blood Pooling*
Dizziness
Fainting
After your workout, your body will be at it’s warmest point, giving you the ultimate opportunity to increase flexibility. Cooldowns also help provide sufficient circulation to the heart, brain and muscles. 
Recovery routines and procedures are vital for avoiding and preventing injuries. If someone begins a workout without being fully recovered from the their previous workout then they are at risk of injury. If you are fully warmed up and things aren’t going right then it is often better to cool down and rest, rather than push through in a compromised state. 
* When exercising your heart is pumping large amounts of blood to the working areas to provide them with the right amount of oxygen, nutrients, etc. When the oxygen and nutrients are used up, the force of the contracting muscles pushes the blood back to the heart be re-oxygenated. But, if you stop exercising and don’t keep moving, the force of the contracting muscles stop too, which then stops pushing the blood back to the heart - blood pooling. This causes the waste products like lactic acid to stay in the muscle and reduces oxygen from getting to the brain which leads to dizziness and even fainting. This is why it is so important to keep moving after any form of exercise. Doing a cool-down after your run is a great way to prevent blood pooling.
