Getting Back in the Groove

After I ran in the Houston half marathon I took a couple months off from running to rest and get to a place where I could enjoy it again. In June, I started slowly getting back to running, but I haven’t exceeded the 3 mile mark since.

Over the years I have had many problems with my hips and shins when I am running a lot. Thankfully I grew up with two Physical Therapist for parents so we put together a 60 min workout to keep your body balanced and healthy while you train or just get back into the groove of running!

Note: You can run intermittently during the workout as seen below or you can knock out the work out, and then go get your milage!
