Strength training and 5k training

Strength training and 5k training
I have been an on and off runner for 3 years. Last fall I hit a great level of running familiarity, form, endurance and speed.
Over the winter I didn't handle a family tragedy well; gaining weight and dropping my exercise regimen which had involved running 3-5 days per week and strength training 2 days a week, minimum.

Now I'm getting back into shape, but really want to run a 5k in mid June.
I've never had to choose strength training OR running, and don't wish to now, as I feel that I don't lose weight nearly as effectively with cardio alone.

However, to train for a 5k I need to run at least 5 days a week.
Can I do it all, or am I setting myself up for an injury?

Any advice on building new strength and 5k training at the same time?
I did strength training and ran before but was in good shape to handle it. Now, I don't know if I'm over reaching or just pushing hard to kick some ass.

Help anyone?

New healthy fast food for breakfast! Yay! :)
A decent fast food breakfast, finally!

I'm all about avoiding fast food, whenever possible, but sometimes you have to bite it and eat on the road.

Subway has a new "English muffin (light/wheat) with egg and cheese" sandwich. You can get either egg white, or regular eggs, and all the veggies you want.
With added spinach, tomato, onion, or whatever tickles your fancy, it's not a bad breakfast for "fast" food.

"giant guns or bulging pecs" ... hahaha! Well, they *would* be fun to flex in front of the mirror Very Happy

You're absolutely right on track, doing what works for you. And I admire the fact that you have the balls to up the weight you're taking on, to push yourself even when that isn't the easiest option.

Let us know when you can crack a walnut between your butt cheeks! Laughing
