Sure, mainly people choose to go to the gym for their cross-training but with a budget and little kids that's not possible for me. What I will often do on these days is get up a little later than my running days (yea sleep!) and follow along with a workout video. Sometimes it's PiYo, sometimes yoga, other times a simple weight routine with either dumbbells or a kettlebell. Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite sources for these workouts I use on my cross-training or "Stretch and Strength" days.

Then, of course you have the PiYo videos from Team Beachbody and Chalene Johnson, that I've talked about before. I still love these and while I'm not following the schedule right now, on one of my "strength and stretch" days or "rest" (that just means no running) days, I will choose one of the PiYo videos, or a video from Chalene's older set Chalean EXtreme, based on how much time I have and what area I want to focus on. I often choose upper body or core, since my lower body gets plenty of work through running and biking.
