As a runner, almost ALL of the exercise that I do is in some way a compliment to my running. A week in the life (during half marathon training) looks something like this:

Monday : 3-6 miles, core work

Tuesday: Rest or XT

Wednesday: 5-8 miles and a Yoga for Runners class that university rec. offers. When they don’t hold it, I do some sun salutations on my own and call it good.

Thursday – another 3-6 miles and Pilates in the evening.

Friday – XT day. The elliptical and I have a secret love affair – this is our day together. Also, upper body weights

Saturday- Long run – anywhere from 6-15 miles depending on milage demands.

Sunday- 3-4 shake out miles and weights or 30 Day Shred.
