>Cross Training>Weight Lifting and Long Distance Running question...
Also, I started using creatine monohydrate for a month. I built a lot of muscle, but not as much as I think I should have for the amount I was lifting. I spoke with the manager of a local Vitamin Shoppe, and she told me that running long distance burns off excess muscle mass. Is this true? If so, would it be true to say that my lifting was essentially negated by going on 12mile runs?
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
