When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

Butt kicks, eh? I've got a few in-laws I could use that one on...
I will say this much, and this is more of a personal view than a scientific one. ... I'm not saying don't lift weights. I'm just expressing my personal views on weight training v. strength training v. endurance training.
Particularly the flatulence. Just ask my wife.
Honestly, once I started religiously making simple strides a part of my regimen, all manner of tight/strained/pulled hamstrings completely disappeared. And I used to battle sore/strained hammies all the time. Especially when I started doing speedwork and racing. Now, I do strides at least 2x week most weeks and my hammies are solid--strong and not tight.
MM, when you do your strides:
1) How long? (I'm assuming about 100m)
2) Do you sprinkle them throughout the run, or are they more towards the beginning?
Running makes me toot.
