    What would be a good offseason/preseason training schedule. This would include gym, running and skills.

    Training Priorities for a Local/Amateur Footballer:

    #1 - Body Composition (bodyfat levels)
    #2 - Speed (acceleration/top end)
    #3 - Aerobic Capacity (low intensity/long duration)
    #4 - Max Strength (relative to bodyweight)
    #5 - Aerobic Power (1 off max efforts over 20 - 30secs)
    #6 - Hypertrophy (armour if needed)
    #7 - Anaerobic Capacity (repeat speed)

    Training should cater to all of these in some capacity, directly or indirectly, at all times regardless of the time of the season

    Of course, and gym work, but there are other things, opposite side training is up there, if anyone's interested in some drills.for not only kicking/handballing let me know.

    I usually hate running, but now that I'm injured and we're starting back I desperately want to get into it. My legs are turning into gelatinous twigs.

    Smart specific running helps. To me it's not just doing a 2km TT, but being able to repeat it at a decent pace (little drop off in pace and tempo) that will be a bigger benefit.

    There's a few avenues you need to master before you simply repeat speed...

    1 - You need to actually have speed

    2 - You need to build you recovery rate through basic aerobic capacity work
