To be honest I don't know, I've really neglected running other than sprints basically since I got back home. My next PT test would be around October I think so for now I was shooting for one longer run day and one 400/800 day. After this week I'll know better where my 2 mile time lies and I can readjust from there. I can definitely ditch the running after my next PT Test.

I just finished my DL day yesterday and already I'm wondering with my running stuff if I should dial my training days to 3 times a week because today I'm hurting can't imagine going out and running repeats today at all.

Have you had any success with full body split type stuff? Wendler had a split in v2 where he had a 3 day where you squat 3 days a week, 2 days are lighter load days, 1 day is a 5/3/1 style day and you pull and push every day as well but lighter loads on the other days and push that lift one day. I wonder if that would be better than I'm only training 3 days a week, running twice a week leaving 2 days for rest/recovery type stuff.
