What is the best cross training to do

Answered By Drew Wasmund

Question

What is the best kind of cross training to do to help my running?

Answer

That's a good question! It would be good to know how old you are and what your background is, but cross training is pretty universal. I have my runners cross train when they are hurt, but we don't do much otherwise to compliment our running. I love to send my runners to the pool. I'll ask them first to swim for 30 minutes or so and then I'll ask for them to "aqua jog" for 45 minutes to an hour. This way our lungs still get a great workout and we keep our running mechanisms.
