Today, I had a great converstation with Coach Jay Johnson about what type of strength training (if any) is appropriate for distance runners. As we spoke, we covered a wide range of topics and various opinions from different coaches, athletes, researchers, and trainers. It made me realize that the thought behind incorporating this type of work differs depending on who you ask, regardless of what current research might state. So I thought I’d throw this poll out there to see what opinions we might get back. Additionally, I’d like to open this up as a discussion with the type of workouts you currently do (if any) outside of running and why? The more comments, the better the discussion, so please leave your input.
