I completely missed my alarm this morning – as in I don’t even remember turning it off! Maybe that was a good thing. Instead I studied muscles at a microscopic level, cooked a delicious salad for lunch (yes I’ll share soon!) and stuck around on campus after class to take a yoga class. The yoga was just what my hips wanted. And now I’ll be ready for a lake run tomorrow followed by today’s core routine!
Sometimes after my shorter runs (6 miles or less) I like to work my muscles a little bit more. It helps condition them for the rarer longer runs. Here’s a really simple (but still challenging) routine you can do after a shorter run without any equipment!
Do 15 reps of each move. Repeat the circuit up to 3 times!
- Alternating forward lunges
- Calf Raises
- Bicycle crunches
- Hip Raises
