I'm not in the know so I've come to a forum with people in the know<br><br>
I'm seriously considering adding mountain climbers, burpees, and 'lunge jumps' to my training.. which right now involves running, push ups, and abs<br><br>
The question: Long run sunday, 2 recovery runs monday, speed tuesday, mid-long run wednesday, speed thursday, 2 recovery runs friday, normal run saturday...<br><br>
What day would be best to do these workouts? I'm assuming after the Sunday run, or after the speed days. I'd like to do everything 3 days a week (and I know I'll be whooped) but don't want to compromise existing training.<br><br>
Thanks for the advice in advance everyone = D

goodness.<br><br>
I'd say you'll have a shot at being sore the day after for a couple weeks (because it sounds like you go all out) so maybe Tues after your speed session or Thursday before your speed session. Each will give you different results.<br><br>
Not knowing you at all.. I'd like to say a rest day is very important for many reasons............<br><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

agreed..<br><br>
the recovery runs are just that - recovery.. I don't care about the pace of those at all as long as I get them in and give my legs a nice shake out.. Saturday is usually a normal effort too<br><br>
but I'll definately try the mixing things up idea of doing it after workout on tuesday and before thursday - thanks for that tip<br><br><br>
lol.. mileage with smileage

If your legs are pretty tired after the sunday long run, the burpees especially will be hell. If I was doing this I would probably do the body weight exercises after the recovery runs on Monday, as well as on Wednesday and Saturday.

Wow.<br><br>
I'd say you're just going to have test things out, because you've already got a very full schedule. I agree with markc7's thinking for the most part though.<br><br>
Burpees are hell all on their own.

Rest day does not equal two easy recovery runs. Rest day equals rest. Sooo important.<br><br>
When do you do your current crosstraining (pushups, abs)? What are you training for?
