Why am I sharing this with you? Well, as you know I am a runner who cycles, and is trying to master swimming. I also ski. Bottom line is I am an active women, and several of my friends are the same. Many of my friends go so hard whether it be running, cycling or skiing, etc but they don’t take time for weight training. Weight training is key for injury prevention. Strengthening the core, glutes are key in the rehab and prevention of so many injuries. Personally it was for me for my Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis ,and my knee cartilage injury. I was a key component after I had arthroscopic knee surgery. So make time in the schedule for some strength training. It fun, and there are several resources such a Audra. She sends me a personalized plan which takes into account my injuries, history of previous injuries, my various activities and where I am in my training cycle.
