One of my running buddies has started doing yoga - can this really help improve running performance?

You might not be able to see a direct correlation between flexibility training and running, but I can assure you there is one. Flexibility exercises such as yoga and Pilates have a whole host of benefits that can be applied to running, including the development of strength, flexibility, range of motion and breathing technique. Recovery time will also be decreased, as your muscles develop and your strength increases. Book yourself into a few classes for a month and see how they work for you – the results will be evident I assure you.

I can't always do a scheduled session on the day it is scheduled. Is it ok if I do it on a different day?

I like doing cross-training such as weights, rowing or netball. Is it ok to substitute some runs for some cross-training sessions and, if so, how many actual runs should I be doing a week (minimum)?
