This past weekend I attended an hour long Strength Training for Runners class at my local running store and while I wasn’t particularly a fan of the trainer who led it (I’m pretty sure it was his first time doing something like this), let me tell you I am sitting on my couch writing this SORE.
Which reminds me, I really should do strength training more often…
I admittedly have never really incorporated strength training into my training and I know how beneficial it is for runners.
So, right after I got home from the class I pulled out these WorkoutLabs Exercise Cards that my friend had given to me and I’m REALLY going to try to start using them more regularly! The great thing is that they are all bodyweight exercises so you really don’t need any equipment to do them – just a little space!
Plus, my friend Allison who came with me to the class has a home gym in her basement so we’re going to try to get together once a week to keep each other accountable. I’m planning on training to run my next half marathon for time, so I’m sure some strength work would really help!
