Hey Randy, does your sweat smell like ammonia? I don't know if this is true, but I once asked my boxing coach why my sweat smells like ammonia, and he said that it comes from when your body is burning muscle for energy. Like I said, I don't know how true that is, but if it is true, maybe you could balance your muscle loss and training by taking time off and eating more when your sweat smells like ammonia, and going hard when it's fine.

On a side note, BMac is a strong dude, and he runs quite often, so it may require some tweaking and effort, but I think it is possible to train for long distance with very minimal muscle loss.
