Cool TT Workout Story From An Injured Runner

From my friend and old college chum, Brad Cunningham, a marathoner from out in BC...

"Dear Craig,

Last summer, when I broke my foot during an ultramarathon, I knew my running was done for at least 3 months and all the fitness I had built up during the previous 3 years would be lost.

So rather than sit on my butt, I decided to get strong because running on its own isn't enough. I used Turbulence Training to improve my overal strength, but specifically core and lower body strength for the trails that I race on.

My foot healed and I started training again only to re-break my foot almost excatly 6 months later! Again, back to Turbulence Training.

Now, 8 months since the second break and after two rounds of Turbulence Training, I am running faster times in workout than I have ever have before!

I have won my first 10k race and came 2nd overall a month later. I am stronger and faster and looking forward to running personal best times this fall.

So I want to say "thank you" to you and your program for saving my sanity during my injury and helping me to come back better than I was before. I will definitely be using Turbulence Training to help me prepare for next season!"

That's an inspiring story. All credit to turbulence training! Cardio alone is not enough! You have to get strong! TT seems to be a perfect blend of all approaches.
