Take a Winter Break

Even the most avid running enthusiasts need to take some time off from running. Cross-training, or participating in sports other than running, is a great way to give your running muscles a break, prevent boredom, and reduce your risk of getting injured. And if you're living in a cold climate, now's the perfect time to try some new outdoor sports, such as cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Of course, it's also a good opportunity to stay inside and use the elliptical trainer!

Get information on the benefits of cross-training and pick a cross-training activity that's perfect for you.
