Running Gait Analysis and Exercises

cold run

To say it has been cold on recent morning runs would be an understatement! Thank goodness for good friends to keep me going when I would much rather stay in my warm bed. Also we look less ridiculous in our reflective gear when we are together!

This past weekend at the running club, a group came by to analyze running gait and check muscles/flexibility. For the most part, my evaluation went pretty well. He said I had good flexibility and mostly balanced muscles. He said the I could work on some weakness in my hips. He gave me these exercises to work on.

I have started doing the exercises, but have been working up to the full amount of sets. I could definitely feel them working!

What are some of your favorite exercises?
