Gym work with full distance plans

strength-training

#1

I’ve just started a base phase full distance plan and am trying to figure out when I should look to do some gym work too. Currently I’m fitting it in where I can and when I’m feeling rested enough, but would like to plan better when I do it. I’m fortunate enough that I’ve got time on my side with no kids or pets (and a very understanding other half). For those of you doing a full distance plan, when do you fit in strength/ conditioning work in your schedule?

Thanks!

What kind of gym work are you doing?

I’m rotating between 2 workouts, legs and uppers, and also do a mix of core in both. I’m doing mostly 2 x 12-15s of; Legs: squats, deadlifts, leg extensions, leg curls, calf raises
Upper: lat pull downs, bench press, lat raises and dumbbell pullovers
