I have about an hour an day to workout in the mornings M - F. Previously, I've been trying to run for 20-30 min on M , W ,F, and lifting for about 45 minutes (full body) on T and Th at a gym near where I work. Recently, my gym opened a facility right at the half way point of my morning run. I'm looking for some advice on the following options:
1- (M,W,F) Run for 10 minutes to the gym, lift for 40 mins, then run 10 minutes back home. (T, Th) rest. Total = 3 hours per week. Would I be cutting myself short by interrupting the cardio like this?
2 - Same as option 1, but add in a 20 - 30 minute run on T and Th. Total = 4 hours per week. My concern here is burning out on the running 5 days/week.
3 - (M,W,F) Run for 20 - 30 minutes. (T, Th) drive to gym for 45 min lift. Total = 3 hours per week. Negative here is the idea of driving to a gym one mile away seems wrong.
My goal right now is simply overall fitness. I also hit the climbing gym once a week in the evenings, and stay fairly active on the weekends hiking, climbing, biking, etc.
