Each week I share a swim, bike, run, plyometric or strength workout from my training. Give it a shot and leave your feedback in the comments.
Here’s a simple plyometric circuit to help build power and explosiveness to minimize ground contact time. Complete it as a stand-alone workout, combine with other strength work, or cap off an easy run. I do plyometrics at least once a week, and the winter is the perfect time to do them. They’ll also pay huge dividends some the spring when it’s time to build towards your first race.
