#Ep.28: "Strength Training For Runners" with Jason Fitzgerald
Jason Fitzgerald finished the 2008 New York Marathon in 2:44 but with a severe ITB injury. Unable to run for six months, Jason put his time into investigating ways to not just recover but also reduce risk of future injury. It seems he found it...
From 2009, Jason was able to run more than ever, achieving a 5+ minute PB at the Philadelphia Marathon in 2:39:32, 1st-place at the 2011 Moraine Hills Half Marathon, 2012 Maryland Warrior Dash and 2013 Potomac River Run Marathon. His secret… strength work.
In 2010, to celebrate & share his discovery, Jason created strengthrunning.com. It quickly grew to become one of the largest running blogs on the web with over 200,000 readers per month, and has been featured in Runner’s World, Competitor Magazine, USA Today, The Huffington Post, and most other major media.
As a USA Track & Field certified coach, Jason is the author of ‘101 Simple Ways to be a Better Runner’ and ‘Running for Health and Happiness’, both of which were #1 best-sellers in the running category on Amazon.
Sounds like the perfect guest to talk about strength training for runners!
Jason won't be speaking at this year's 'RCL International Running Conference 2019' October 30/31 in Brighton, UK (full details: https://RCL2019.eventbrite.com) but we are determined to get him next year!
