Okay, I feel pretty embarrassed to be writing this and kind of ashamed to have my own running blog yet not really know how to cross-train. As I prepare to begin training for my second half-marathon, I notice that most of the training programs I've found include cross-training. I have always known it was important to train in other ways besides just running, but for someone like me who does not have a bike or a gym membership, I constantly feel at a loss of how to cross-train. While I know it's not absolutely necessary, I feel that I need to incorporate some cross-training to prevent injury. I have my hamstring injury that I am constantly battling, so cross-training just seems to make good sense. Help me!
So runners, please tell me what you do to cross-train or include non-running workouts in your race training. I would absolutely love your input and suggestions!
