My recent “Ask Crazy Legs” post brought in some great new questions that I’m excited to answer for you, including dealing with aging as a runner, training for hills, and what to do when your training is thrown off track.
It may be odd, but I speak with runners I do not know and who do not know me every day. Granted these chats are not actual conversations but ones that go through my mind when I see other runners out and about. Sometimes, I am running and enjoying the day with them. Other days I may have already finished my run. And still others are when I am in transit in some other form than running shoes.
Every now and then when I am training, this small imaginary guy pops up on my shoulder and whispers, “You don’t have time for that…” or “Oh man, you have tons of time before your next race, take a day off..” Today he was whispering, “It is way to freaking cold to go for a run.”
The value of strength training on a person’s performance in ultramarathons is significant. Incorporating the ideas presented this article will increase performance and decrease injuries associated with ultra running.
