Can I do other exercise alongside my running training?

  • Yes, you can do other exercise alongside your running training. This is known as cross training. As running is a relatively high impact exercise, alternative activities like swimming and cycling offer a way to have a good workout without the impact. Try not to replace runs with other activities (running is the best training for a running event) and be sure that any supplementary training isn't tiring as rest is an important part of training.
