Wild Workout Wednesday- Strength Training for Runners

Hello!  Happy Wednesday, it's time for another Wild Workout Wednesday Link up.  So sorry I missed you last week, my little sweetie caught the flu that has been going around so I was taking care of her.  It's so hard when they are sick and miserable.  But she is back to her normal happy self.  I am happy to be back for another great Wild Workout Wednesday Link Up!  If you are new, be sure to check out the guidelines for the link up then add your link and be sure to share with the #WildWorkoutWednesday on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  It is so great to link up with so many awesome bloggers each week, and I love reading all the fun and motivating posts.  If you're not a blogger, no worries, sit back and enjoy some great workout posts, recipes, motivation and much more!  Thanks for joining!

My 5k training has been on hold last week and this week, which is a bummer!  I was doing so well with getting my workouts in.  Last week like I mentioned my little one was sick and I was spending all my time getting her back to her happy, healthy self.  Then we had to prepare for Easter, we had family over, so I was busy shopping, cleaning and cooking.  Then Sunday night, I got sick!! Ugh!  I am just starting to feel better, but its my sinuses and a head that are killing me so I have to wait until  I am feeling better to get back to my workouts.  I just picked up the toys in my living room and it wore me out, haha!  It really is the worst being sick.  So, once I am feeling better I am going to double up on my runs during the week until I get caught back up.  Today I want to share a strength training workout for runners.  I have still been getting my weights workout in, well I was until the sickness hit our house.  It is important to still workout with weights when training for runs as well.  You want to stretch out after a quick warm up then get your run in then do your strength training workout in.  I usually do the opposite of what I just mentioned, but since running is what I am focusing on I want to use my energy for that first then get my strength workout in.

I hope that you enjoy the workout!  Are there any moves that you would add?  I am hoping to get back to my workouts by the end of this week!  I have to get back on schedule with my couch 2 5k program!
Do you have any races coming up?
