MR STRONG

To really improve your running, strength training really is as fundamental as putting the miles in. Follow these basic principles to be a fitter, stronger, injury-free runner

EXPERT ADVICE

Martin Yelling is an endurance coach, ex-international athlete and husband to Olympic marathoner Liz Yelling. With a half marathon PB of 66 minutes, Martin specialises in running coaching and hosts the Marathon Talk podcast.

Being a strong runner is not just about running more and more miles. In fact, doing more running to improve running can lead to injury.

This is where focused strength development can really help. The strongest runners are those who are able to consistently rack up week after week of training and in doing so develop a whole-body strength that supports their training volume and enables them to push harder, tolerate more and dig deep when it matters. Being a strong runner means you’re robust and resilient, better conditioned, functionally more tolerant to the demands of specific running and at lower risk of injury.

About Men's Running

When I first started at MR – a fresh-faced graduate with fully functioning knees – I ran to keep fit. Did I do it? Yes. Did I enjoy it? No. Fast-forward two years and things are a little different... 2016 saw me run my first marathon, my first ultra and – the natural progression – my first 24-hour track race. People talk of the running bug, but this was a full-scale pandemic. In the months that followed, though, I got lazy. The thought of running elicited a vacant stare, a memory of plodding round a 400m track at three in the morning, and the muttered words, “You weren’t there, man.” So, resolved to refind my running mojo in 2017, I signed up to a race, the Brixton 10K (p94), in the hope that it would spark me back to life. And, along with providing depressing confirmation of just how much slower I’ve got, it certainly did that; the post-race feeling reminding me just why I fell in love with running in the first place. For many, though, running’s true benefit lies not in racing but in the adventures it brings. In our lead feature this issue (p46), photographer James Carnegie leads us on a whistle-stop tour of Northern Ireland to prove that, with just a little planning, a day is all you need to run some of the finest routes the UK has to offer. You may not find me scrambling up the Mourne Mountains any time soon, but you will find me running again. Here’s to getting back on track in 2017.
