So .... here I am approaching Wk 9 and for the last 8 weeks or so I've done nothing but try and fit my 3x /Wk runs in. No other type of exercise.
Having started running outside, I now appreciate how much tougher on my bod that is that the treadmill and my lower back is whinging badly so I know I need to start some core strengthening exercises for starters. I'd also like to get back to some resistance/weights and also some yoga/Pilates but wonder how you fit it all in when it's advised to rest (legs) between runs. Is it ok to start doing weighted squats etc on 'rest' days? Maybe I have to drop down to 2x /Wk runs.
What do you guys do in between runs? If anything!?
