    Help choosing a strength program for a runner

    Hello, I need some assistance choosing a non-intimidating and simple strength program. I am a 25-year long distance runner with little-to-no experience when it comes to strength training. I want to protect my bones and prevent future injuries. I suck at sticking to strength workouts because I just do not like doing it.
