Day 005 - Weight-lifting for runners

R&R: Run, or cross-train + weights        Training via ActiveMail

EITHER RUN 5 MILES EASY, OR CROSS-TRAIN AND LIFT WEIGHTS FOR 45 MINUTES: Your weight-training routine should include both upper- and lower-body exercises. Don't waste your time doing high repetitions with low weight. That approach builds endurance, but it's more effective to build endurance by running. Instead, lift for strength by working to failure (that is, to the point where you just can't do another repetition). Do 2-3 sets of 8 repetitions (reps) per set.
