I figured I'd have to do something like that. Once I reach my running goal of 1.5mile/9:00min what kind of mileage do you think I would need to maintain?
I am planning on doing my bodyweight training after every run. Basically I'm doing my lifting(for my personal goals) in the morning, and all of the "for the job" stuff in the afternoon(running, bodyweight training, etc.). Is doing bodyweight training 6x a week going to be too much? The most I'd be doing is 3x50 pushups, situps, 3x10 pullups. Also what kind of mileage do you have in mind?
I know it's a fairly short run. I used to run 40-60mi/week last year when I was training for the 3mi run, but I dropped down to 165 when I was doing that, don't want to get anywhere near that again. Also, I figured that for a bodybuilding forum, and amount of running would make me a runner.
I agree that I don't need that high milage. As far as my running program goes, I was planning on switching things up on a week to week basis.
Week1: Tempo/Pace-per-mile running. 2 days of of 1-2 miles as fast as I can, 3 days of recovery running. 1 day of hard cross training(rowing/swimming)
Week2: Medium interval: 800s/400s, same pattern above, 2 hard days, 3 recovery, 1 hard cross training
Week3: Sprinting: Same pattern as above, but the 2 hard days will be short sprints.
Week4: Misc: Fartlek, weight vest running, etc.
I wouldn't necessarily do these in order, I would just pick randomly at the beginning of the week. Do you think I'm better mixing these all up within one week?
Also, any opinion on what I should be doing for my strength/size goals during this? Guiness mentioned above 5/3/1 and focusing on strength not size while I get my run down, I'm wondering what others think about this. Like I said, I'm doing the shut up and train 4days/week split right now. I figured that was a nice and basic program, but I'm open to suggestion.
