Most important strength exercises during running season?

I have been focusing on strength training, and am currently in the middle of the 12 week PPL. My running season is usually from about April until November, when I train 3-5 days a week for various races. I want to minimize losing the gains I’ve been making with strength training when that time comes next year. What exercises would be most helpful if I can only incorporate 1 gym day a week?

Intensity of daily steps

My job allows me to walk 10k steps in a 8 hour window. It's not intense. I survey job sites at ground level and roof tops. Should I still invest time in cardio via running if I'm already reaching 10k steps on a average day?

Trimming belly fat at 37

Body fat % test

Listened to the AMA about cutting/bulking. regarding body fat %, what is the best method readily available to the average joe? I understand inbody is inaccurate as well as the handheld available at most gyms.

No Equipment Ab Exercises

Are there any effective ab exercises that don't require equipment? I often run out of time in my gym workout before I get to do any abs (I am following your High Volume Full Body program!) but I would like to fit in some ab exercises at home when I have time instead of skipping it entirely. I don't have a pull up bar or weights at home. I could work on plank variations but wondering if there is anything else you recommend. Thank you!
