Day 001 - Your first workout!

Cross-train + weights        Training via ActiveMail

CROSS-TRAIN FOR 20 MINUTES, THEN LIFT WEIGHTS: Welcome to your easy 12K training program! Eight weeks from now you'll be ready to run a 12K race (about 7.5 miles)! For today's workout, cross-train for 20 minutes and then lift weights. Cross-training is any activity that allows the muscles you use in your main sport (in this case, your running muscles) to recover, while still producing a training effect for that sport. Deep-water running and cycling are the best cross-training activities for running. If you haven't lifted weights before, get help from a qualified personal trainer or staff person at your gym.
