It has always been advised by many running experts to do weight training. Unfortunately, if you are like me, going to the gym isn't easy for a working IT person with a very hectic schedule and an undpredictable working hours. The only time I get to run would be in the morning at around 5 or 530am and I only have an hour or two to do my run since my work starts around 9am. Many times, I end up just running 30minutes of tempo pace and I immediately head back home.
So my dilemma is how to fit a weight training program in my schedule. Yesterday me and my wife went to Shangrilla Mall where I had my wife checked at Healthway and for her to have a wart removal therapy at Clarity clinic. The wart removal procedure took an hour and a half so I spent the time visiting different sport shops. I passed by Toby's and found a set of resistance bands that costs P295. I've heard about resistance bands before, but I haven't really digged into the idea of getting some for me. But nevertheless I thought that it could be a great idea to try these bands and see how they could help improve my running, and perhaps also improve my muscle tone.
I hope they work for me. I'm planning to do strengthening workouts 3x a week.
