Running Tips:  

Beginner and experienced runners/walkers can benefit from cross training. I was not always a big fan of cross training but the more I add this into my training the better runner I have become.  I have listed below a few reasons why cross-training can help you become a stronger runner/walker.  

Cardiovascular

Cross-training will help with your cardiovascular,believe it or not getting your heart rate up into the proper zone can help build on your running. One of the best workouts I have done in the past year is T25, this has help me with my cardio and core.  

YOGA/PILATES
Stretch­ing and obtain­ing over­all flex­i­bil­ity are just as important as getting your long run in.  Not a big fan of Yoga? I wasn’t either until I started doing PIYO and was amazed at how my focus and concentrations improved as  well as my flexibility. Take the time to do it and see how your running/walking improves.

Core Strength  

Get your core strong and improve your running. This is a must and you have a lot of options to  help you with this.  Remember your core is not just your abs but includes you back.  So look for activities or exercise that will help improve and strengthen the lower back as well.
