I'm out of the running game for the next few months, but I stopped by to remind myself of the exercises I should be doing to make it easier to get back into it again. Yay, runners!

I'm not a runner, but I used this article for a workout today by doing some of each one. Ooh, I can tell I haven't been consistently working out!

Oh, I also wanted to say that your cardio doesn't have to come from 'running', you can use these exercises to strengthen your stamina for WALKING too, which everyone can do!
I started walking my dog last year, and she was a younger pup, so before I knew it, I was running with her and though I've 'hated' running for 35 years, I love it now! a brisk walk is still a really good workout!

Thank you for letting us know how to save articles! I never even looked at that tool on the far left side of the screen!

Hey don't forget to do chest and shoulders! Keeping good posture is a must, especially when running. Every step during a run pulls down on your upper body.

Very interesting. I had not thought about this before.

We don't all run. I am a swimmer. What is the best strength training program for me?

2 sets of 15 planks? That seems like overkill, as does 2 sets of 15 supermans. I think that must be a mistake. Those set/reps make sense for squats, lunges and crunches, but not the other 2 exercises.

I thought all the exercises were great suggestions. And they're good for everyone. But it seems like all the articles lately are on running. There are a lot of us that can't run or don't enjoy it. It's almost like you're saying "if you can't/don't run, what are you doing here?".

On the left side of the page, you can 'save' the article (the button with the heart). Then it will show up in your SparkFavorites.

Yes, how can we mark it for easy reference?
