Paddle Power

Take advantage of the warmer days and do some cross-training on the water to supplement your running. Stand-up paddle boarding is a great way to boost core strength and work on joint stability, such as in your ankles, due to the constant balancing act to stay upright on the board. Bonus: You can continue to work on that summer tan along the way!
