Join Us for a Twitter Chat with Running and Strength Coach Richard Airey!
Twitter Chat with Richard Airey - Tuesday, August 6 at 3:30pm PST (6:30pm EST)
If you're a runner looking to improve your times, Richard Airey has some tips for you. Richard is a long-time runner who created the website RunningWOD to help endurance athletes improve their technique, endurance, and agility.
What makes RunningWOD and Richard's approach different? Unlike many other running training programs, Richard's programming integrates running with strength training and technique work. If you're curious about what that would look like, stay tuned for Richard's upcoming Featured Coach workouts and articles, which begin Monday, August 5.
We asked Richard a few questions about his background and the RunningWOD approach. Here's what he had to say:
1. How long have you been a runner, and how did you get started?
I started RunningWOD because I wanted to share my programming and racing with other endurance athletes. I know a lot of endurance athletes who are hesitant about strength training because they think it will take time away from their other training or they're not sure how to balance everything without getting big and bulky. RunningWOD balances the volume of endurance training with the appropriate amount of strength training. I also wanted endurance athletes to know it's okay to use things like barbells and kettlebells when training. Bodyweight training is great, but there's more to strength training then push ups and sit ups.
