I have two questions I would love help with.
1. I just started strength training, and I am new to it. I have been running for a year and a half. Additionally, I'm starting to up my long runs for a marathon I'll be running in May. SOOOOO, how do you handle leg work? I'm assuming I should not be strength training my legs the day before or after a long run. Is that enough? What should I know? My program has me doing leg work twice a week.
2. I'm starting to increase my long runs. I know I've heard this before, but is it a 10% increase in mileage per week that is safe or 20%? Of course I want to avoid injuries.
Thanks in advance for your responses, and happy running!
