Doing 2 moderate to intense cardio workouts to prepare for a few races coming up. Some of the cardio is aerobic, some anaerobic. I can't do the workouts back to back but I do them within about an hour and a half of each other because I only want one shower because I'm a girl with long hair. I do one workout four days each week, the other six days each week. I would like to get in some weight training and some yoga. Best way to maximize my efforts without killing myself?? And best weight training to do??
Do body weight exercises. And do them the Bulgarian way. Very few reps with loss of sets. Reps in a set = Max capacity reps ÷ 2 or 3. This will enable you totrain the muscle groups everyday.
By the way, if you are training for an event, the best way is to do it more. Like if you want boxing strength, box.
Hope this helps.

Still got a few questions!
What kind of race(s)?. And just discripe your training routines. Makes it easier to understand what it is you need to do to be prepared.
5K in Sept, tough mudder in Oct, 10K in Nov, 1/2 in Dec. Well, that's the plan. Doing long distance run or walk/run 3 days/wk with a forth day running short distance/faster speed. Doing Insanity 6 days/wk as I have been told it's a great way to prepare for a tough mudder. After I finish these two programs I will begin my 1/2 training, which I believe is 3 days long distance, 2 days short, 2 days walk/run?? No, there's a rest day somewhere. I don't have it with me to look at. No weight training routine. I weight train, there's just no routine. No yoga routine but I have a yoga app to use if I don't have anthing specific. Really want to be able to do every challenge in the tough mudder and I know my upper body is week.
I am not the best running coach tbh. Im not so experienced with preparing for longer distance runs races. But i think i can help you with your though mudder. Gonna check whats all in it before putting extra info up hehe
