Hi, RW members this is my first forum post and I someone can help
I've just got back into running after a lengthy spell out with injury/illness.
Currently I run at the gym 3 times a week (for between 20-45 mins per session), which I combine with weight training (for 30/40 mins per session).
I'm running a 5k road race in May so I will be looking to step up my running in the next few weeks but I'm a bit confused as to what to do with my current weight training program - do I keep it the same or do I need to modify it as I increase my running time?
I vary between 2 programs of weight training, changing to the other program every 4 weeks:
1) Training multiple body parts per session, 3 sets of each exercise up to 12 reps per set with lighter weights.
2) Training 1-2 body parts per session, 4 sets of each exercise 6-8 reps per set with heavier weights.
Any advice/tips/suggestions would be most welcome!
