Hi there. I am new to this fitness board and have a question. First, I'm an overweight runner, by about 20 lbs. I run anywhere between 20-40 miles per week, depending on what I'm training for, and I usually run 4 days a week. I am overweight because I eat like crap!! But I'm working on it. The next thing I would like to work on is strength training. I would really just like to get toned and healthier all together, along with losing those 20lbs. My question is this. I have no idea when or how often I should go to the gym, or what I'm supposed to do when I get there. I thought if I could post my possible schedule on here that someone could help me work it all out. Keep in mind, I can't reduce the number of days I run right now. I'm doing a half marathon in May.
Mon: 8-9:15 am- Gym
Tue: 6:30-7:45 am- Gym, 4:00 pm- run (1hr)
Wed: 8-9:15 am-Gym
Thur: 8-9:30 am-Gym, 4:00 pm- run (1hr)
Fri: 8-9 am - Gym, 4:00 pm- run (1hr)
Sun: Long Run (2+ hours)
So I can definitely get to the gym, would I have to go as often as I have listed here, and what body parts do I work on each day?
I know this question probably seems petty but I'm just clueless when it comes to strength training and going to the gym. I know you're not supposed to work the same muscle groups every day. That's pretty much all I know. Thanks for any info!!!
