Scheduling Running VS Lifting

This is always a tough issue to tackle for runners, “When should I lift vs when I run?”.

I often see that people (with good reason) think they should do their lifting on their running rest days. However I like to do the lifting on hard run days. The reason for this is because this reserves the rest days for what they should be, rest days. Doing a heavy lifting session is not a rest day!
