Finding the balance between running and weight training is not an easy task. In fact, there are many different variables that come into play when striving to excel in both without ending up overworked or even injured. 

Some key areas to think about are the following:

  1. Warming up properly
  2. Form and breathing 
  3. How much rest do you really need?
  4. Increasing weights while running more miles 
  5. Nutrition and hydration
