A brisk walk should be fine without a structured warm-up routine.

But if you’re waiting for a friend, firing up the glutes and quads may be a good idea. This might look strange but get into the bottom of a squat and just stay there for a bit. After all we are the land of Indian toilets. Post the walk, do some mobility drills to open up those hips and quads - foam rolling is a great idea… and very relaxing!
