Myths About Running Training


There are plenty of myths flying about all over the place when it comes to running; mainly vocalized by non-runners with various degrees of truth and hilarity to them. However, I also hear two very distinct, performance hindering myths from regular runners, and they both surround the subject of TRAINING as a runner.

  • MYTH #01 – “Runners don’t need to train legs because of all the running we do”
  • MYTH #02 – “Runners don’t need to train upper body because you don’t need that for running”
