Take It and Run Thursday: Strength Training Made Simple
It's our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners. It's the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together. Even though many of us aren't elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn't mean that we haven't earned a well deserved PhD in running. Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.
Today's theme is .... 6 1/2 minute strength training for runners. If you could spend 6 1/2 minutes each day building your strength to benefit your running, what would you do? What are some of the most effective strength training exercises you do to help you run faster, longer or more comfortably? How do you fit them into your regular running and other workouts? Share your favorite, simple strengthening tips. Do tell. Just post your name and URL below.
Next weeks theme is .... Backwards TIaRT. It's been too long since we turned around Take It and Run and gave you a chance to pose BOTH the question AND the answer. Share the one burning question you have about your running and ask other TIaRT readers/contributors for their feedback.
