Alright! So this is the final phase of my 12-week weight lifting program.

When you pick up this phase you should be starting out your ninth week of the program. That means, your weights are getting even heavier and you’re performing even less reps for each exercise.

Hello Hungry Readers! How are you?

Sorry, I’ve been relatively quiet since sharing my favorite Super Bowl Snacks earlier this month. (If you haven’t tried making those sweet potato bacon bites yet, well I highly suggest you get your butt in gear and whip up a batch. You will not be disappointed.)

Anyway, moving on to the core purpose of this post: to share the next stages in my 12-week weight lifting plan with you.

Less Running, More Lifting: My 12-Week Weight Lifting Program

Ever since I finished the marathon in November, I haven’t been much into running. This is mostly because I’ve been lifting a lot of weights. And after I came across and began this 12-week weight lifting program, I got really into spending my time on strength training.

I enjoy little bouts of running here and there, but for the most part, I think I might have exhausted my capacity for distance running; at least for the time being. (After all, I was just on the phone with Mark and I did mention that I’ve been itching to sign up for a half marathon. But that won’t happen until after we move and we’re all settled in.)

Right now I have a gym membership with LA Fitness, and instead of spending hours on the treadmill there, I’ve been finding more enjoyment in the weights section. Picking things up and putting them down, if you will.

-Cross Training Workouts For Runners-

You’ve been running for several years, and have decided to take it up a notch; maybe it’s time to train for a long-distance race? Yes, the eventual goal for most runners is to run a 10K, or a half or full marathon, but it won’t happen overnight, go slowly and train in stages. As you delve into the world of running more and more, you’ll start to hear a lot of talk about cross-training, and how it can help your running. So what is cross training, and how does it help?
