It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start training for spring races. When I look outdoors and see more and more snow piling up, it really doesn’t seem like the green grass is every going to show again. Each year I have to double check my calendar around this time because I’m always surprised that it’s time to start training again.

Lo and behold, my calculations were right, and training for spring races has begun! The start of a new training plan brings along so much excitement after a break from running. With a plan officially in place, I am excited to see my mileage increase.

The increase in mileage often means that other exercises and workouts will take a back seat for the next few months. While I don’t mind trading in the elliptical for an outdoor run, I always need to remind myself that the strength workouts need to stay. When my runs begin to take up more time, it seems to get easier and easier to skip the strength training.

As this new season of running begins, I am determined to head into spring races with full body strength and fresh legs. This means that I’ll need to be careful to maintain balance in my training plan. Running is always the easy part – it’s the extra stuff that makes these plans tough. Rather than spending hours each week getting in some strength workouts, I have decided to split up all of the strength moves and incorporate a few of them each day. 

This will require me to spend about 10 minutes after each run or workout dedicated to full body strength building, but ten minutes feels like nothing after an hour long run. I know that I will be so much more motivated and consistent with strength work if I only have to spend a few minutes on it each day. To keep myself accountable, I’ve created a 30 Day Strength Training Challenge. 

This strength training challenge is great for runners, because it incorporates strength to many of the areas that really get neglected on a run. These at home strength training moves help our muscles stay strong and prevent injuries throughout training.
