I really want to commit to incorporate strength training into my fitness routine. How many distance runners are strength training? How often/how much time do you spend strength training a week? Do you avoid legs before long run days?
I worry that I’ll have sore/tired legs on my running days and that the time commitment will be too much once I get closer to my marathon. Thanks!
