Flying Pig 2017 Training

I'm not quite sure what to do with myself for this training cycle.  Since I last trained for anything, I've added an additional 2 days per week of lifting weights.  I'm not sure how that all sorts out with mileage and other things.  So far I've learned
  • I still do need a 'rest' day and that's general going to be Fridays. 
  • I like the weight lifting. 
  • I don't want to run too far on days I lift.
  • I can run and elliptical on days I lift but all cardio has to be done first.  (Once I ran my mile, lifted, and then tried to do the elliptical and that did not work.) 
  • Sunday and Monday will be 'bigger' mileage days.  I want back to back days because that's how the race will be. 
  • Tuesdays has always worked as a low heart rate day, so that I can run and do Kettlebell class on the same day.
  • Wednesdays I have no idea what to do with myself.
  • Running the rest of the week - I have no idea how to focus

Weight Lifting plan is taken from StrongLifts with some additions of my own.
