There is increasing evidence to support the importance of doing strength and resistance training if you're a runner. If you're serious about increasing your distances, reducing your time and preventing injuries that stop you running longer term, strength and resistance training is crucial!
As part of our support for the runners of the Eastleigh 10k, we've been holding regular Strength & Conditioning Workshops in our Chandlers Ford 'Strong Room'. These have proved so popular and the feedback so positive, that we've decided to roll them out as a regular workshop.
