Basically I have 3-6 months to go from being able to run 1 mile (now) without stopping to 10k.
I plan on running 3 non-consecutive days per week and progressively building up from 1 mile to 10k. Would this be so much that I would have to cut back on my lifting and sacrifice progress?
I'm currently on week 7 of Madcows 5x5 but I'm thinking if I switched to something like 5/3/1 or a Westside variant I will be okay. Anyone have any experience with this? Advice or tips?
Also, to those curious as to why I have to do this, I will be entering a police academy in 3-6 months and they routinely go for 10k runs and I'm expected to be in shape by Day 1 but I also don't want to become small and weak which is just as important.
