I am in my 30s, and I run up hills and use the stairmaster every other day. In addition to this exercise, should I do lower body weight training, if so which days? Weight training is recommended for health, but not everyday so the muscles recover.

In brief: Weight training

Weight training twice a week with lighter cardio workouts on those days as your schedule and time permits.
