I Can’t Feel My Legs When I’m With You

Strength and Running Form Workouts

As I have a lot of important running goals this year with the help of my amazing boyfriend I now have a trainer! We have organized my training into three sections this first one is focusing on form and building a solid foundation.  She has made me two workouts, one for Tuesday and one for Fridays(sometimes Saturday).  They have been super beneficial to me! I can feel myself getting stronger especially when I am picking up speed.  Here they are in case anyone else wants to give them a try! Keep in mind I did strength tests so that they fit exactly what I need so they may not help you as much as they have me.
