Hello, everyone! It was a beautiful day here and it was very nice down at the Oakland Running Festival today. One thing really struck me, though. As I watched and talked with various people who had just finished either the half or full marathon, it became pretty apparent that many of them really hadn't trained the best way they could.
Some people looked good and some really looked terrible. I only spoke with one person who had even done any resistance training in preperation for the race.
Resistance training can help the endurance athlete in so many ways from injury prevention to force production to running economy. It's not just for guys who want to get big.
I think that I will write something a little more extensive about that soon, but seeing as how I'm doing this on my phone I think I'll end this one now and keep you in a little bit suspense. You can, of course, call or email me with any questions if the suspense is too debilitating. I don't want anyone getting hurt.
I hope you're having a great weekend! We'll talk soon.
