Overtraining?

Maybe this is kind of a dumb question but would it be over training if I ran for 30 min Mon, Wed, Fri and then on the days I'm not running to do a 20 min HIIT leg workout?

    What are you training for (what's your goal)? You don't need to do HIIT workouts 3 - 4 times a week, but you can. With 3 days of running and 3-4 days of leg-focused workouts, you're working your lower body every day, but you don't mention working your upper body or core (specifically). I'd suggest your non-running days be workouts that vary. Maybe the 20 min HIIT one day, an upper body and core strength one or 2 days, and at least 1 day of rest where you can be active (if you choose) but don't do any structured exercise.
