    Running with weights?

    I have searched online and found two general themes on running with weights:
    1. Ankle weights will injure you and mess up your running form.
    2. Dumbells will mess up your running form.

    A number of questions that I have: Are these general statements true? Does it matter if you are using running for conditioning versus training to be a better runner? Is there any advantage to running with weights?

    Thanks

    Running in general wears on your joints, so adding weights to it cant be good.

    Not sure about the Dumbells but running with weights around your ankles has always been a no-no in the research I've performed into cardio work

    Since we are talking about running with weights, what about weight vests?

    Why does everyone need to use weights when they run? What is leading to people asking these questions? Why not just lift weights when you lift weights, and run when you run?

    Like, you don't see questions about "Hey, is it ok for me to run in place while I do overhead pressing?" or "Is it ok for me to sprint from the squat rack to the power cage in between sets of squats and rack jerks?"

    Isn't circuit training roughly what you are describing?

    No, circuit training tends to be done in the form of a circuit, with multiple exercises for high repititions and short rest periods in between exercises, rather than running in place while in the middle of an exercise or sprinting between sets of heavy exercises.

    It doesn't really address my original question though: why do people want to combine the activities and get mediocre (at best) results when they can perform one activity well and get great results? Like, what could weights add to running that running with extra intensity can't accomplish? Or a running parachute/sled?
