Even crazy desert ultra runners do The Stork

Recently Julia was asked by the organisers of the famous 100km of the Sahara to star inĀ a video to help those training for this epic desert race. Guess what topic she covered? Foot agility.

Having strong, agile feet is essential for everyone, not just runners. Strong, conditioned feet are not only important for runners and walkers, but they help your balance which is so important as we get older. That’s why we include foot agility exercises in all of our courses, from Up & Moving to 5K all the way to the marathon.. And beyond, if you fancy trotting across the desert!

If you’re not familiar with The Stork, here’s Julia’s instructions on how to do this super simple but mega effective exercise. It only takes ten minutes per day. You can do it anywhere – standing in the queue at the coffee shop or in front of the television. And take comfort in knowing the elite athletes are doing it too!
