Hi everyone, i was making a few changes to my training plan and i was wondering if its worth it to get some dumbells or kettlebells to add to my plan below or if this is fine, cheers for any advice.

Monday:
AM: Superset Workout.
PM: easy 3miles.

Tuesday:
AM: british army 2km run test (jog 0.6mile to warm up, rest 2min then 1.5miles best effort.)
PM: stretching.

Wednesday:
AM: 6 miles slow and steady run.

Thursday:.
AM: Superset workout
PM: 2 mile run (optional)

Friday:
AM: easy 3 miles
PM: Rest and Recover, maybe do 15 minutes stretching

Saturday:
AM: interval runs, ¼ mile×8, 1min rest in between.

Sunday:
REST. Absolute rest day.

Supersets

Push ups for 30 seconds then crunches for 30 seconds ×4
Then
Pull ups for 30 seconds then squats for 30 seconds ×4
Then
Burpees for 30 seconds then decline push ups for 30 seconds ×4
Then
Australian pull ups for 30 seconds then knee to elbow for 30 seconds ×4
Then
Plank push up for 30 seconds then tricep dips for 30 seconds ×4
Repeat all of this twice then 1min bear crawl

Add weighted vest once you can do 50+ push ups and 8-10 pull ups.

100% worth it, strength training increases power and maximal output, decreases injury risk with some studies saying it can be even more effective than yoga for injury prevention.
