Working our hips must be a consistent part of our workout routine. But it doesn’t have to take long. A good burn for a few minutes a couple times a week can make a BIG difference in our stability and strength!

Today’s workout takes 4 minutes per leg plus a little extra for our push ups and wall sits. Maybe 15 minutes total…if you take your time on the push ups. Can you make 15 minutes to gain the stability and strength you need to carry you through all those long miles?

Cherry on top? Nice trim hips that will fit into those jeans we love! 🙂

Day 16 exercises:

  • :60 Wall Sit
  • Push Ups – 3 x 10
  • Modern Moms/Dads Hip Strength
  • :60 Wall Sit

Speed Work: Speed work may always cause a little bit of nerves but as you get more used to it, you will get better at it and it will not be so anxiety inducing. You just have to suck it up and get it done!

This week we have options for speed work. If you are training for a longer race, such as a half or full marathon or even a 15K you should go with the mile repeats and you should be doing more than this shows. I have talked a lot about the distances you should be running, so I would like to see what you have retained and how important your goals are to you… 🙂

If you are training for a 5K or a 10K you can choose option #2. Remember…you get out of this what you put into it so choose wisely!
