Holy forever! Four years ... but not gone. ;)

So am looking for some advice.

Am currently training for a half-marathon - has me running roughly 40-45 kms a week, running 4 days a week.
While this, am on NROL's FL-III, 4 times a week. Was on NROL's Strength II before that.

Thing is, as am putting all these miles on the road, my legs are feeling it - more than usual. Am thinking the legs are being overtrained.

Anyway I can maintain the intensity of FL-III yet not blast/tear my legs apart while training for the run?
Or am I going to have to compromise?

Any thoughts?

Stephen, Better late than never.

For the running, don't worry about the speed the first time out. It's about finishing. Strength training is fairly intense, and if you add intense running on top, you will overtrain and everything will suffer. I think there's value in mixing up the running so you have some shorter faster runs along with less frequent long runs.

On the other hand, I only run when I have to.

Hey Stu,

Thanks for your comments.

For the half-marathon, the goal is to simply finish and not stop; am not aiming for a specific time. Just aiming to make it.

And I agree with the mix up of running. For example, here's what this weeks running plan is:

Monday: 8km (s-m: slow to medium pace)
Tuesday: off
Wednesday: 6km (m)
Thursday: 12km (s)
Friday: off
Saturday: 12-15km (s)
Sunday: off

Realized yesterday I had finished my FL-III, so decided to give the first week of HYPER-III a go, to change things up. Three work outs a week, to coincide with the off days for my running. Yet would want to do this for only this week before doing another circuit-style program that will keep pushing my endurance up.

Any ideas?
