Back in April, I ran the Stronglifts 5×5 program for a couple of months but ended up dropping it so I could focus on running. So many things were going on at that point that I couldn’t sustain the energy demand of both exercises.
Fast-forward six months, after getting a bit of a mileage base (almost 500 miles), I think I’m ready to start back again.
How do I fit it into the schedule?
- Sunday – Stronglifts
- Monday – Rest
- Tuesday – Running in morning, Stronglifts in evening.
- Wednesday – Running
- Thursday – Running in morning, Stronglifts in evening.
- Friday – Rest
- Saturday – Long ass run.
Pretty simple, eh?
Tues and Thurs are my short run days (4 miles).
I hope this is maintainable as the weight goes up. That seemed to be the sticking point for me last time.
We’ll see how it goes.by
