    Personally, I would do abs after running, because the core muscles will be in a weakened state after doing abs workout which is not something you want when running. It is the one reason I always leave core workouts till last in any training day, so that the core is not weak and does not compromise back health during the rest of the workout; the last thing I want is a bad back just because I decided to do my abs first.

    i do warm up cardio, then abs, i know your not suppost to, but i can hardly do what i normally can if i do them last, and it does not effect my muscle workout. So i would do warmup, abs, muscle training, then running. As long as you can keep your body in a upright position when running, straight back, you should be fine. i say this so that you allow the maximum amount of air in and out of your lungs, leaning forward causes winding, that is why you should always look straight ahead of yourself, and not down at the cardio machine like i see so many at the gym doing. Hope this helps?
