Doug Lentz of the American Running Association breaks down the benefits of weight training for runners.  The article cites both injury prevention and performance as key benefits of incorporating strength training into one’s weekly training schedule.  In addition to outlinging the reasons for strength training, Lentz suggests integrating periodization into your annual training plan.  In other words, he suggests that runners view their annual running calendar in blocks of time that cycle through varied training with regard to intensity and volume.  Lentz then walks you through how to set up a program and ensure you are doing what works best for your particular training goals.
