In what way has lifting weights impacted your running?

I'm doing both, successfully I think. I do weights 4 or 5 times a week at 6am before work. I run in the evenings or weekends 4 times a week. And I mean serious running. I did a half marathon this year and want to do a full next year.

I eat plenty. I cut on more calories this summer than I ever have. My longer runs are usually on a Sunday when I tend to have a cheat day anyway so that fits.

I have struggled to train my legs. They're often already tired before I start. And I'll subconsciously back off with the weight on the squats for example, knowing I've got a run that night or next day. And sometimes I will hit the legs hard and running isn't that easy but it's usually possible.

Yeah leggs are the biggest problem feel like lead the next day but even after chest day I tend to suffer and my pecs feel like lead and seems to take away stamina. At the moment I run 3 times a week but im aiming to add another couple of runs a week . I've been running for years and coach atheletics as well , ive only been weight training for about 4 months so im going through a big learning curve recovery being the biggest problem to get right .

I used to run five miles around the hills of Lincoln in the '90s when I was bodybuilding to work the hams. I'll be starting jogging again as part of my new routine after Christmas but will probably use a treadmill with plenty of incline walking too.

Follow a full body routine 3x a week and your legs won't feel like lead.

A simple squat/bench/row, then a day off, then deadlift/press/pull ups would work well for you.

You probably currently don't have the capacity to perform the total amount of work. What are the goals for the weight training and running and do they conflict?

On the running im looking at 6mile runs alternated with some speed work, just really to keep fit.on the weights im looking to add a little bit of muscle and just get toned im hoping with the both I can loose some fat im looking to shift a stone to start with .since I started weights lve lost speed I know the loss of speed is inevitable as I get older but its been a big drop.im enjoying the weights but like I say it's a big learning curve I think im trying to train like a 30 year old

You shouldn't lose speed if you continue to run whilst you lift.

Rep scheme isn't too important. Go for 4-6 sets of 5-10 reps. Aim to progress the weight gradually. Film your technique and post it on here.

You may be doing too much too early (weekend warrior style) which often ends up in injuries due to an inability to adapt to training fast enough. Watch out for any reoccuring pains.

Are you measuring your times to tell you that you've lost speed, and over what distance?

As Jack mentioned I do a full body workout 3 days a week with 3 HIIT sessions on days in between with one day off for recovery.
 
For FBW I do 4 compound exercises for legs, back, chest and shoulders then a couple of isolation exercises for arms/hams/calves etc and some ab work to finish.
