Will running have an impact on my gains?
I really like to run and will most likely continue to do so even though it has an impact on my gains. The reason why i'am asking is that when i'm speaking to guys in the gym they do not understand why i'm running when trying to build muscle.
My understanding is that it is mostly long distance running that drains your body from resources to such a degree that it burns muscle. I really enjoy the treadmill especially when it's cold outside.
I always run the same distance: 5 kilometers / 3,10 miles. I run with a speed about 14-15 km/t. it takes me around 21-22 minutes to complete my workout. I never run the same day as i lift.
