I'm starting to run! My goal is to run a half marathon in May. Couch to 13.1 miles! Who else runs? What are the best cross training or strength exercises to help improve running time, posture, stride, endurance, and all around be a better runner? Thanks girls :)

Hi Maggie, I run and actually just created my own running team with the businessI just opened and I tell my girls that planks are your best friend!! Elbow plank, regular planks, side planks, because of the core workout it gives you and when you have a strong core, you can run better, lift your knees higher which helps prevents shin splints and balance and stops injuries. You can also do my workout called 'Scrumptiousness' that I created on here and that will help tremendously!! Always remember to warm up and stretch, that's very important and if you want to...

Don't be afraid to take on hills! It'll work all different parts of you legs and back then running flat. Yoga is awesome. It helps you control your breathing and tighten your core. There are even flows designed specifically for runners! You just gotta look:) I've gotten up to running 4 miles every other day:) best of luck to you!

I so cross country so I have some tips. Keep your back straight while running, when going up a hill drive up your knees and raise them up, drink water in sips not gulps.
