Weightlifting plus running

  1. Weightlifting plus running


    Trying to figure out how to incorporate more running in my routine. I lift full body 3x a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and I run on Sundays. I want to add running on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    How do I adjust my leg training? Each of these full body sessions I put more emphasis on a body part. Back, chest, or legs, sometimes shoulders.

    I can even lift Saturdays, but donít cause of full body. I just do some LISS.

    I could Make it to where Monday is a strength upper and Wednesday is my hypertrophy upper and Friday is my strength lower day. Or I can keep leg training on Mondays and Wednesdayís but Friday is my leg emphasis day since I donít do much on Saturdays. I would like to keep getting stronger on my squats and deadís but I want to have good endurance to.
    Sunday could be sprints and Tuesday could be distance, like 5 miles, and Thursday could be like a recovery run of 2 miles. I see runners do a recovery run the day after but Iím trying to lift weights to so.


  2. Ultimately, the first couple of weeks might be tough but I think youíll get used to whatever. Not sure what youíre doing for cardio now, or how much but unless weíre talking a dramatic increase in volume and intensity, I donít think going for a nice jog is going to be dramatically different than the stair master or some spirited work on the elliptical. If youíre wanting to run 30 or 40 miles a week on hills, trails and whatnot obviously thatís different.

    As for the recovery run, thatís something runners do primarily after longer races, ie 10 miles or more. I ran half marathons starting at 15 years old, so I have some experience with all this.

    Biggest thing is I think youíre just gonna need to feel it out for the first couple of weeks and see how you feel but it sounds doable. I think the sprints are far more likely to beat your legs up than just going and running 3or 4 miles each day. Iíd start with just doing that before trying to structure your running. Just get some miles under your legs first.

    I mean I am not an absolute noob at running. I could go do a 5k in under 30 right now. It’s not the best but probably a lot better than the average person who is unexperienced.
