Strength Training for Runners
Collection by Angelo Wilson • Last updated 20 hours ago
Runners strength train for injury prevention, endurance and speed improvements, and weight maintenance. Coaches advocate running 70%-80% of weekly miles as “slow” miles (e.g., 80/20 mantra). My aims differ from some of the posts below; to improve strength and endurance, I strength train BEFORE running "slow" miles, and to accelerate fat burning and improve speed, I do H.I.I.T. AFTER running "slow" miles, alternating weeks for each objective. Do what works best for you. Find ideas here.
