Beginner runner here. I have been running consistently for a month now to train for a 5k
My question is what strength training and stretch exercises and would complement my running?
My current running and weight lifting routine consist of:
Running outside on the road Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during lunch break.
Strength training Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the afternoon.
My strength training consists of squat, bench press, overhead press, deadlift, and barbell row.
Basically, following Starting Strength
with modification of barbell row for power clean.
Is there any other runner-specific stretch and strength training I should add to my routine? I don't do any stretch now.
I could run 2 miles now but I am experiencing discomfort in my right ankle after every run. My right knee was injured couple years ago while doing heavy squat but I went to the doctor and there nothing wrong with it.
