Hi, aftre a break of two years i'm returning to long distance running, steadily increasing my mileage to between 50 - 80 miles a week (2 x 6miles 5 days per week and a long - 15/20 miles at weekend) and eventually hoping to get into ultra's.
Trouble is - purely for vanity - I want to build some lean muscle mass in my arms, shoulders and chest. I currently have an ok build for long distance - just over ten stone and 5'7" - but really want to bulk up. I'm 31 and have been running since I was 20. I've completed marathons and do a lot of hill work and trail running but as mentioned really really want bigger arms chest and shoulders. Am I peeing in the wind? I've increased my calorie intake to around 3000-3500kcal a day and have noticed my weight increasing am am plannin on supplementing running with some resistance work in the gym and a couple of hours swimming a week. Advice would be hugelu appreciated!!
