Lesson 8: Lifting for Runners

In this lesson instructors Carrie Lane discusses why distance runners should need to be strong and how they should integrate strength training into their plan. With a background as both an NCAA Division I distance and throwing coach, she knows both endurance and strength. She uses this experience to give practical examples of how to work on strength with endurance athletes. This video builds off of Lane’s three-part article series on the topic.
