Shaf, you used to run distance before you started lifting didn't you?

Clearly you didn't reach 405x5 overnight nor did you lose the ability to run 6:30 miles in that period.

There are guys on this board who lift and run all the time. It's doable. The problem to me is that too many people try to do much shit too much of the time. And they equate everything to the means and results of professionals.

Everyone wants to be elite don't they? Wonder where that came from.
The rationale for reduced gin intake and the knowledge of the perils of alcoholism and attendant metabolic derangement has almost entirely come from physicians and researchers.
