Strength training on non-run days does not allow for adequate muscle recovery and if your goal is to become a runner, I stick by the studies that state ST should be done after your runs. I also recommend Alex Hutchinson's book, Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights? He refreneces all the latest studies and debunks many of the fitness myths many of us have come to accept as fact.
Just know that we are all unique so it's difficult to make universal statements, but when the data supports one way more than another, you can feel better knowing that you are doing what is best for you. runnersconnect.net/running-training-articl
