- Drink a full glass of water with lemon right when you wake up
WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Indoor Conditioning for Runners
The winter has arrived folks, which means if you are a runner, things get a little trickier with your workouts. But don't think about it as a setback. Instead, think about it as an opportunity to work on cross training and strengthening the muscles that make you the awesome runner you are!
Here is a great Strengthening routine that you can work into your weekly schedule. Be sure to get in a good warm-up prior to starting and do some active stretches as well.
Are you a runner who is looking to strengthen your legs and core to promote better form? Try this workout twice a week along with some dedicated stretching (coming in a later blog post) to take your stride to a new level.
a proper warm-up, do each exercise and move onto the next with no rest. After all exercises are complete, take a 1
minute rest and then repeat.
