As you may have noticed, I’ve been talking plenty about marathon training lately (are you tired of hearing about it yet?), but I haven’t had much of a chance to talk about some of the specifics, like my strength training workouts, which are just as essential as any other part of the program.
Remember, strength training is important, not only because it will make you a stronger, faster runner but it will help you to prevent injury, too.
Strength moves like lunges, mountain climbers and abductions offer an opportunity for you to move your joints and muscles through different planes of motion, which helps to counteract the repetitive motion of running.

This is the story. Last week I was supposed to attend another workout at the Reebok Fit Hub in Union Square, like I did two weeks ago for Tara Stiles’ yoga class. (All of the Reebok FitHub locations host free fitness classes for everyone throughout the year!)
This time the workout was with Spartan Race CEO Joe DeSena. Unfortunately, my schedule ended up changing and I wasn’t able to attend the workout. However, Reebok was kind enough to let me hold on to the gear they had sent for the event, so long as I agreed to share it here on my blog, which was what I was going to do anyway!
This is a great question, because eating the right foods at the right times before your workouts can greatly improve your performance. So today, I’ll answer this question in detail for you all!
Oh boy! Well, I’m just one week into marathon training and this journey is already taking me for a wild ride!
OK, it’s nothing that crazy, but over the weekend I made some emergency changes to my training schedule.
