Legs & Butt…Supplementing Our Runs

In Uncategorized on January 4, 2013 at 4:43 PM

We’re finishing our first week of marathon training, and though the workouts are similar to what we used to do, we are adding in more mileage when it comes to our runs, which means when we hit the gym for a workout, it’s got to be a good one! Running will make your legs lean. And sure, running in the snow and ice makes all those stabilizers work hard…but there is nothing like a great leg workout!

This leg workout was actually very challenging because we didn’t have much of a warm-up before hand. (Our mistake…we were tight and sore half way through all the exercises)
