One of the goals I keep making for myself is to do regular strength training. I start, but then marathon training takes over and I always end up quitting. In order to recover from my current injuries and prevent new ones I need to focus on improving strength and my core.

I am a huge fan of Biggest Loser and would love to have Jillian as my trainer, well I guess the Shred dvd is the closest I'll get. Many of the runners/ triathletes I know started this workout a few months ago and love it. I decided to give it a shot. I started 2 weeks ago and can already see a big difference even though I have only been doing it 3 or 4 days a week.

The Shred workout is 20 minutes and consists of 3 circuits of: 3 minutes pure strength, 2 minutes cardio/strength, and 1 minute abs/core. The length is perfect to fit in just about any time, I have even gotten up early to get it done in the morning before work. 2 more weeks to go to finish 30 days of Shred, maybe I'll even keep going after that.
