Hi everyone, I just started weight lifting seriously about 4 monthes ago and have made some serious strength gains and fat loss going from 210 lbs to 165lbs and from 30% fat to 15%. Before weight lifting I had already been running a little. After starting weights I started running seriously, doing at least 21 miles a week or more ( I would run three times a week 7+ miles a run)
Then I heard that running eats away muscle (duh should have figured this) so now I am only doing 40 minutes of running which is 5 miles for me. If I only run 40 minutes I wont eat away my muscle will I. I had heard anything over 40 minutes does that. I really love to run but I want a ripped physique more. If I can have both that would be great. So I guess my question is can I run and lift weights and expect to make muscle size gains? Thanks in advance.
