I'm in between training programs right now. I have a few more weeks before hard core marathon training begins. I've really been working to strength my postpartum hips and overall strength. I DO NOT want to get injured. It's been many years and a few kids since I marathon trained and I got injured my first go around as well and had to take time off. It sucked. I don't want to do it again. Especially since I spent a fair amount of $$ to run MCM this year. Not to mention its on my bucket list and I WANT to be there.
With that said. I've been doing several things and plan to stick with it when training begins again. First the myrtle routine. It's awesome http://kineacademy.is/gogn/nutlimur1/pdf-itarefni/myrtl.pdf Try it out it works hips especially for us motherrunners. I've also been using runnersconnect.com for strength routines to prevent injuries. Check it out. Finally I've been doing some sort of routine like this
What routines do you all do? Are you good at sticking to a routine while running or does it get lost in the shuffle?
