I am by no means a runner. But I can tell you that a good old general strength training program is beneficial to everyone – regardless of the activity you’re involved in. I’m referring to the staple strength exercises that have been around forever – squats, lunges, dead lifts, bench presses, rows, shoulder presses, etc. & the many variations of them. And of course core strengthening – stability ball rollout, jack knife, arm/leg raise, and so on. Building up a good strength base with the basic movements will have a positive effect on any physical activity you do – including running. As far as specific running advice, listen to the others & not to me – good luck Sandra!
