How to combine running and fitness training? I run 3 times a week and running is my primary training activity. I usually combine it with a workout in a gym. Running goes first and the gym goes second. A friend of mine told me I was making a mistake because according to him it should be the other way around. As running is more important to me I prefer doing it my way. I usually train at my threshold zone.
Running is the best way to strengthen your cardiovascular system and improve circulation while building the foundation for other fitness activities. Strength training, on the other hand, develops your muscles, which means that your body burns its fat reserves more effectively. As a result, a combination of strength training and running have the best effect on your performance – you push your body to a higher level.
