I see so many runners shying away from weight training their legs because they don't want to be sore and mess up their run schedule. The truth is that you may be sore at first if you are not used to weight training your legs, but ultimately strength training helped me become a better, much faster runner. For me, stronger legs were faster legs. I absolutely credit my PRs to weight training (and yes, hill repeats). Quote that Runner's World!
It was nice being mentioned in a Runner's World article, I just wonder when they will put me on their cover? I'll be waiting by the phone.
