I am midway into week two and have some interesting results so far. Was able to run twenty miles last week and make it to the gym three days for a Nautilus set on a light weight setting (60 lbs.). I was able to lose a pound which is not bad because I had several IPA’s over the weekend.
This week I have already run sixteen miles and had one trip to the gym but increased to 70 pounds on the machines. I have lost another two pounds and feel fantastic. I think the runners high is starting to kick in.
Anyway here is the thing if I am increasing muscle via cardio and weight training albeit light weights at the start. I would think I would gain or at best maintain current weight since I have kind of been in a stall for awhile. Unless I am consuming muscle mass I must be adding muscle and losing a quantity of fat. It should not take long to figure this one out. I am very pleased and will continue my research. With any luck I will hit 30 miles this week and feel back in the groove!
