I am still working to find good balance. I have recently upped my calorie range to accommodate the running now I just need to work on my days getting full :).

Wow that was unexpected, thank you for the compliment. I would say twice is fine but you have to make sure you are scheduling it where you can still take advantage of your recovery days. Remember all our progress is determined what we do outside the gym, not in. Meaning proper rest, recovery, and nutrition. I am assuming since you are training for a running event you are currently on a running regimen. Be careful not to over train and under eat.

I was hoping you would answer Flexchef, you give good advice. Do you think once (or twice) a week added to my two other days is enough strength training?

Rock climbing is an excellent way to strength train, its great for the all around upper body development. Plus it's a great way to ad variety. Their are so many different muscles used in rock climbing that you wouldn't be able to hit with just traditional strength training, and you improve your core strength which in-turn will help your running. I think it would be an excellent addition to routine.

This isn't really a clean eating question, but you guys and gals have some great advice so I thought I'd ask.

I do a weight training class twice a week. They are whole body with limited cardio for about 45 minutes. I wanted to add in some more but didn't really want to do the same types of exercises. I use to do indoor rock climbing (about 6 months ago for about 2 months) but stopped due to price and scheduling. I felt like I was getting better (and stronger, especially the arms and balance) and was wondering is this a good option for weight training or is it just more of a hobby and need a more work out X for 15 reps 3 times the do body part Y?

Just to round out the information. I get enough cardio during the week (I'm training for a marathon) so I have to make sure I get in my rest days. I also can't work my legs out too much, I don't want to over do anything.

Let me know what you think?

Thanks,
Loren
