Our expert says:
I believe that using body weight and free weights, you are probably getting the right amount of weight training. I do think that there is no such thing as an optimal amount of weight training though, and so I can't say for sure that what you are doing is the right amount or not. You must also remember that even walking or jogging is weight bearing exercise and so you do get some benefit from these.
For a weight training programme, I would suggest looking at the following website: http://www.health24.com/fitness/Getting_started/16-474-488,24069.asp
Here you will see a number of options for training programmes. My advice would be to choose the Shape up for Summer programme (the first or second one) and then go for that. These programmes are comprehensive - they contain both cardio and weight training and so even if you want to stick with your current cardio you will see some weight training ideas.
