What every runner should know about Strength Training

On this episode of Ask Coach Parry we have a question in from Daniel Cunama, Daniel was saying he ran Comrades in 2013, that was the last down run, and his quads were in agony from Fields Hill onwards. Daniel, welcome to the club, I think that was most of the Comrades feel.

He says he was walking the downs, running the ups! You suggest in your training programs that you should do strength training and he wants to know, what specific training would you recommend. Would a full body gym regime cover it, is spinning enough, a few quad and glute specific exercises, what’s the best way to go for Daniel?
