Strength Training:

We all know runners need strength training, but we don’t always get it done. With this program

you won’t need a gym membership because we have written in strength work for you. The strength is all body weight oriented so you can complete it anywhere! The program has repeated workouts so you can assess you growth and is designed specifically for runners. Strength routines and individual exercise will be provided in you training plans and be visible on youtube via Endurance Matters Coaching Channel to do on your own when needed!

Try out these routines before and after your runs before you start the program:

Pre Run Routine:

SAM #1:


Tuesdays are for intervals and we would like to open multiple time slots to do your workout: 5 am, or 6pm. This is to help those of you with busy schedules be flexible with your workout times. Workouts will vary between several locations in Fort Collins throughout the program.

Saturdays are for Long runs and we will be meeting at various locations on Saturday mornings at 7:30 am.

We will be doing strength work together after Tuesday and Saturday workouts. So be sure to alot ~10-20 minutes of time for that beyond total running time when considering what time slots you choose each week.
