Day 11 and another leg strengthening exercise (well you are a runner aren’t you!). Complete between 10 and 3×10 each leg after your run.
Day 10 and some core work. Be careful or maybe skip this one if you have a bad back. You can make it easier if you bend your legs. Complete between 10 and 3×10 reps after your run.
Day 9 and we’re doing plyometrics – well it was inevitable wasn’t it! You can bob up and down on the spot but adding forward movement increases the usefulness of this exercise. Complete between 10 and 3×10 reps each leg after your run.
Day 8 and definitely one for after your run. This one strengthens all sort of things. Complete between 10 and 3×10 reps after your run.
Day 7. These exercises are not difficult but they are oh so useful – combining a nice post-run stretch and a strengthening move. Complete between 10 and 3×10 reps.
Day 6 and you either love these or hate them. It is worth checking you’re doing the exercises properly to get the maximum benefit from them. Complete between 10 and 3×10 reps straight after your run.
Day 5 and more leg strengthening – complete between 10 and 3×10 reps following your run.
Day 4 and now for a nice stretch. Do this move anytime for a minute or two. Yoga generally is very beneficial for runners, maintaining core strength and flexibility. Namaste!
Day 3 and still a walk in the park – aim to complete between 10 and 3×10 reps, after your run.
OK day two – still very easy for you runners! As before, complete anything from 10 to 3×10 reps following on from your run if possible.
