I would say forget the weighted vest and go for a good hydration vest instead, it will do the same thing. Last year I invested in a hydration vest for longer runs instead of my usual bottle belt, I found that I was wearing this more and more on my shorter runs as well as the longer runs. This was because I was enjoying the increase of weight as it was making my shorter runs harder. So I felt I was getting more out of them. My training goal was London Marathon and to achieve a good for age. Once I started my Marathon tapper I stopped running with the vest. End result a 4min Marathon PB and a Good For age for this year so it worked for me but we are all different
