Take It and Run Thursday: Cross Training

Take_it_and_run_thursday_2 Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday!

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 .... Cross Training.

Runners can't live on running alone and in fact, do better if there is some kind of cross training in their training plans.  A few weeks ago when we had Backwards TIART, many of you talked about cross training.  What is working?  What doesn't work?  What is the good balance of running and cross training?   Share your own lessons learned as well as links to good books, websites, training plans and other resources.

Just post your name and the title/topic of your post in the first spot and the link to your post in the second spot.    

Next Week's Theme is ... Running in the Heat.   The spring temperatures are slowly rising and summer is just a few weeks away!  Does everyone remember last summer?   The never ending heat and humidity.   Do you remember how tired we were of the heat?  If you don't, dig back through your old posts and bring back those memories of heat, humidity, wind and then more heat and humidity.   And then share your tips, old posts, lessons learned.  We can't wait to hear how you plan for runs, stay hydrated and stay cool.

yeahhh.....I need to do some cross-training. Does yoga count? If it does, I don't think I could write an entire blog post on it. I'm suffering from some writer's block. Arrgghhh!!!!


Has anyone else noticed that the number of the running blogs they read because of TIART has increased dramatically?


Ha ha. These posts and even the titles are cracking me up. We know it's good for us and our running, but no one wants to do it! ha ha.

Yoga totally counts, Razz.

I'm embarking on so much cross that my running is suffering. Oh, the balance to have balance. :D
