I've been lurking. This is a great thread. One word - Rugby players. They find the time to 'run' and lift weights. I've seen them training in the gym and on the pitch and wow. You can't tell me they can shift like that by running once a week, for 5 miles as fast as they can.
I'm not fast, but I do have endurance and stamina, which has been gradually built up over time. KKD, listen to the advice that these very experienced runners are giving you, and maybe, just maybe, you might stay injury free and hit your target. Alternatively decide what is important to you, and stick to either weightlifting or running.
