  1. Distance Running (Marathon) And Lifting

    So, I'm pretty new to this website, but I thought it might be able to answer a question or two about running and weightlifting. I've looked around the internet for anything like my questions, but I haven't found anything solid that can answer my question specifically. A little about me (it might be important): I'm a high school student, I run track and cross country, and I also wrestle. I've been trying to make some gains strength-wise, so I started on the 5x5 program. Recently, I've been unable to complete relatively low weights (195 squat, 155 bench, 235 deadlift when I'm a 5'10", 168 pound male). I have a feeling this is due to bad form or an inconsistency with my schedule, so I was thinking of restarting to try and improve both, especially with the time I'll have from summer. However, I'm planning on running a marathon in the fall (my official 18 week training program starts in about a week). The program has running almost every day of the week (the two I'm thinking are here and here, but I'm not stuck to a program, so I can go easier or harder). I know long distance doesn't really work with weightlifting (at least not competitively), but I'm not doing anything competitive with either; I'm just looking for some gains in both running and strength. I could also drop a few pounds, just to trim around the edges (in January, I was 140 for wrestling, but was cutting hard to be there). Nothing I've found so far accommodates for actually running a marathon, so I was wondering if anyone knew of anything, program wise, diet wise, etc. TL;DR I'm I high school student who'd like to run a marathon, make some strength gains, and drop a couple pounds. Is there a weightlifting program that accommodates marathon training or vice versa? If so, what dietary changes will I need to make?
