As runners, we all know we should be doing it. It should be as much a part of our training as speed drills and the long, slow run.
No, I’m not talking about stretching (even though we should do that, too).
I’m talking about strength training.
A few weeks ago, Lululemon reposted this article on their blog from Jason Fitzgerald, a running coach at StrengthRunning.com, which promotes the benefits of strength training for runners. While Fitzgerald does a pretty good job of explaining why runners should incorporate strength training into their training plans and what they should be doing, he doesn’t really explain how.
