Strength training sucks. I have a co-worker who gets annoyed when he has to run. He says “Running still stinks. We lift heavy stuff, put back down.”
I feel the same way, but about strength training. It is maddening. I know that I need it, but it really does me in.
I mean I am really pathetic. I can do 6-10 simple squats, and I hurt for 2-3 days. Even though I don’t feel them at the time. Planks have me quivering in seconds. Really, I fell like I need to build my strength, but yet when I start my running is degraded. Completely frustrating.
I got some great advice from @ConsciousRunner that I hope to put into effect when I start running tomorrow.
