If you’re serious about running your best, you should be serious about keeping your core strong. When it comes to the core, one of the biggest problems for runners is that form suffers as the miles add up and your abs gets tired, allowing your spine to round forward (we all have race pictures to prove it). This also reduces your breath capacity, which decreases your endurance.
Hi Wazzies! I've been a bit removed from the world of racing, focused on getting strong after a foot injury. That story is not a fun one. But, I have to be thankful for the process. It has allowed me to evaluate what I've learned as an athlete during my time in Bend, to recommit to my goals, and to hone in on what's next.
