how important is...

cross training when you are training for a 10k? This might seem like a ridiculous question, but last year I was out of work when I trained for my first 10k, I had all the time in the world,...this year I work 50+ hours a week and just feel no motivation and normally no energy to do it all. I'm lucky if I'm running 3 days a week...please help. The race is May 30th.

Re: how important is...

  • Can you cross-train and run on the same days? I only ran 3 days a week when I trained for my first half and threw in one or two days of cross training.

  • I haven't actually thought of doing them on the same day. I guess I could if I wasn't too tired. That's a good idea, thanks.

    I'm still curious though if it's vital to do CT.

  • I ran one without any cross training. Granted, it was incredibly hard for me, but this was partially because I just started running in January and mostly because I hadn't run in the 3 weeks before the race due to an injury.

    It probably makes the race easier and it prevents injuries, but if it's a choice between your sanity and training, I'd say keep your down time and don't worry about CT.
