Strength for the Masses
Shorter sessions, more often, works for me and it might work for you
A quick strength session, multiple times a week is as good, if not better than zero or one strength session a week.
That’s right. I said it.
For those of you who can handle one or two monster strength sessions a week, you keep on rocking it. This one’s not for you.
For the rest of us, who struggle to get strength training done because we’re either really busy, we’d rather be running, or because it takes too much out of you… Then this is what you need to be reading.
On Wednesday, I shared a new blog post called Strength Training for the Busy Runner and if any of ya’ll are like me, you really need to give it a read.
I’ve always been slow to recover from workouts, including running and strength training, but I know how crucial strength training is for me as a runner… Since moving to shorter sessions, but spread out more often throughout the week, I’ve found success in how I recover, how I feel after the sessions, and how often I do them.

10-15 minutes of strength training, multiple times a week will greatly benefit your run training.
