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 :)

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.

I've just completed c210k and now also heading for 21k.
Rest days are important (you can work other muscles) as is stretching - afterwards. For improving speed try fartlek. Good luck.
Don't overtrain on running, shin splints are not funny and will mean an enforced break putting your training on hold.
