comment Effect of squat and dead lift on long distance running
That's an interesting take. Personally, I experienced my 5K times degrade to 24 minutes or slower, where I had previously consistently been hitting 19 to 20 minutes before I added squat and dead lift to my workout routine. I'm only now slowly converging on 20 minutes again. Granted, 5K is not long distance, but I've also found that I don't feel like running longer distances anymore. I feel the effects of a 10+ mile run getting in the way of lifting weights three times a week. For now, I've chosen to build up strength and settle with 5Ks.

comment Running shoes vs barefoot: which is better for squat and dead lift?
I don't think I could bring myself to wear dress shoes at the gym, but bare feet seems to work great for me.

That's a funny analogy :-) Is the average gym goer really that terrible? It seems to me most of the free weight lifters appear to know what they are doing...

sounds reasonable. I did my weight lifting routine yesterday bare feet and it felt great. The biggest change seemed to be a significantly increased sense of my center of balance. Bare feet seems to be the way to go for me.

comment Effect of squat and dead lift on long distance running
I'm not doing squats and dead lift to improve my running, but rather to diversify my exercise routine. I was mostly curious to see if squat and dead lift could have a significant negative impact on running. In addition to squat and dead lift I also do barbell rows, lat pull, bench press and military press on the days where I train with weights. For now, I am aiming for overall fitness, so I plan to stick with lower weight, higher reps, less recovery.

I run three times a week. I added swimming and weight exercises for diversity.
