I'm not going to beat around the bush here, guys.
I absolutely suck at cross training.
Its something I've been working on. I logically know cross training with make me a better runner and a better athlete all around. I also know that when I'm training for a triathlon I feel much stronger.
When it comes right down to it, I am lazy about cross training. I tell myself its more important that I don't miss my running workouts. But really, I should treat both as equals.
So this week I am being very intentional about cross training. I have successfully cross trained both yesterday and today. Three more days to go. Tomorrow I think I'll swim and Thursday (technically my rest day) I'm planning yoga.
Do you struggle with cross training? Are you more likely to skip a scheduled run or cross training work out? How has cross training helped you?
