Admit it.

You’ve completed tried at least one of those 30 day challenges.

The ab challenge. (yup)

The squat challenge (kinda)

The plank challenge (kinda)

The arm challenge (nope – I get enough arm challenge carrying twin toddlers thank you)

I follow quite a few fitness and running fanatics on twitter, one of which is Kinetic Revolution. He offers a free 30 day challenge that he claims will change your running. Run Faster. Run Stronger. Or so he says.

Historically, I am not very flexible. Yoga has helped this some, but even my once a week practices start out pretty awkwardly. I’m stretching almost every day, but I’m told by my chiropractor at every visit that I’m still too tight (ugh). Since I’m really focused on trying to keep running without injuring myself again, I thought I’d give this a try.

The first week focuses on Basic Mobility and Balance training. From what I can tell, its based on a series of stretches (hip flexor, hamstring, abductor) and balances (single leg with eyes closed) with a few tweaks.

If you’re interested in joining me, you can sign up here. (you get a daily email with the exercises.) Or you can follow along while I do this (and blog about it to keep myself consistent and honest) and see if it works for me.

What’s your go to running stretch/exercise?

Also, I know I’ve been pretty fitness heavy lately – fear not, more twins posts coming soon.
