8 Things That Will Actually Make Running Easier

1. Weight training. Specifically the quads and core will benefit you the most, as a runner. The quadriceps are key to lifting your legs off the ground. Here’s a little exercise that can help, and be done at your desk. Put one ankle over the other, then lift and straighten the lower leg 10 times. Do several sets. You’ll feel it just above the knee.

2. Take shorter strides. This will make your runs feel easier. A new study out suggests that it can make you run faster and longer. If you shorten your stride when you race, you can increase your sub-maximal
speed and maintain it for a longer period of time, in turn you can run longer and further.
