Your excuses for not incorporating strength training into your training plan are no longer valid. 😉 I know what’s it’s like to pile on the miles, spend time foam rolling and stretching only to not have any time left for doing strength workouts. However, the benefits we get from cutting a few miles off our schedule and taking that time to do strength training are immeasurable.
Strength training will make you a stronger runner, help prevent injuries and quite possibly even help you set a few PRs. It will also improve your overall health and fitness by helping you to increase your lean muscle mass, prevent osteoporosis and maybe even help drop a few pounds.
Incorporating strength training into a running program can seem complicated so I’m making it easy for you. I’ve created a 15 minute workout you can do three times a week on alternating days. (I even bet that after you’ve done the workout a few times it will only take you 10 minutes!)
