If you are trying strengthen your legs like I am, try adding wall sits to the end of every run or cardio routine.
Wall sits are an isometric static squat exercise that help to build strength and endurance to the lower body- glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves. To get into the wall sit position, lean against a wall with your feet shoulder-width apart, then squat until your knees are bent at 45 or 90 degrees. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds; work up to doing 10 sets. Add a challenge by including heel raises: Lift your left heel, then the right, then lift both together twice.
