Your Strength Workout
You’ll do these exercise before each run AND on non-running days as a strength workout.

ON STRENGTH DAYS: 2-3 sets of 10 reps (on each leg) of each
Squats (or side walking squats)
Forward lunges (or walking lunges)
Reverse lunges with trunk rotation
Leg swings (front to back and side to side)
Hip rotation (hurdles)
On non-running “Strength” days add:
30-60 second plank

Stretch after every run, and as needed on other days. If you have a particularly sore muscle and need stretching ideas, let me know!
