Power = Force (strength) X Speed. Running economy is the rate at which your body can produce power - so if I have the leg strength, I can create power - then, each foot strike will feel like less of an effort! Yeay!
According to the NSCA, weight training at a high intensity with few reps combined with plyometrics helps improve neural muscular adaptations. These neural adaptations allow your body to be able to recruit muscles at a faster rate.
Now, that I have strength and speed, I got the POWER! ... And this all translates into a better running economy - but for now, The DOMS!
