Strength Training for Endurance Athletes

If you are an endurance athlete – specifically a runner – chances are you are either currently training for your next event, or rehabilitating a recent injury. If we were to play the odds, you are more likely to be in the latter category. Research shows that up to 56% of runners will experience an injury in any given year that will keep them out of training for a period of time. Of these injuries, up to 75% are due to overuse[2] – in other word, no contact. This is an alarming number, as non-traumatic injuries are almost entirely preventable.
