STRENGTH AND FORM RESOURCES

Don't forget that running strong means getting strong. While you're building your running base, build in some strength and form too. A simple workout routine to do 3-4 times a week is the "7-minute workout" (and there's an app too). Or hit the gym and make sure you cover your core and legs. Strength training and form is important for injury prevention and speed! 

Butt Kicks & High Knees

A, B, C Skips
