Post run leg workout and Athena routine

I’ve always been a fan of coach Jay Johnson’s work – he stresses that runners do a good bit of general strength work along with their running. Here’s a good example of a post run leg workout, followed by his “Athena routine”
Keep in mind you probably don’t want to do this type of routine prior to your run. There is a great deal of core work involved. If you do the workout pre-run, you will fatigue your core muscles (glutes, torso hip flexors etc) which are so important for stabilizing everything when you run. If they’re fatigued, you get poor stabilization, and potential injury. Make sure this is done after the workout.
