I have a challenge set for the end of the year in which I want to test a 1RM in the three main power lifts, then in the same day run a 5k. I have normally trained for speed with strength as a secondary focus. I’ve also trained for distance running in the past. I’m comfortable with programming each aspect.
That said, I’m not sure I should train both with the same intensity at the same time. I don’t mean deadlifting while running around my neighborhood, as awesome as that would be for the neighbors to see. I am talking about splitting up the focus
I should focus on endurance first right? Just like if I were training for a race?
