Cross training is anything that is gets your muscles and lungs going that isn’t the same old thing you are training to do anyway.
As runners, we can’t only JUST run to stay fit. We need to stretch ourselves and experiment a little to remain balanced athletes.
Here’s some ideas to try out some new muscles, and become more of a rounded athlete and to have a whole lot of fun at it.
There is the standard cross-training – biking, swimming, yoga, pilates, weight lifting. But that can get boring. Change it up a little.
Well you have just seen what my style of cross training is even if you don’t agree that it is the best kind for you.
Just get out there once in a while and make sure it is NOT running. And have fun at it. A lot of fun!
