RE: Tickle's Lifting Thread
I'm interested to see how you get on as the balance of power shifts away from running and more towards lifting weights. I have a similar history in that I've done a lot of running, cycling and football (soccer) for most of my life, while still trying to fit in lifting weights on a regular basis (as I've loved lifting since I saw my first Arnie film in the 80's)

The only time I've made real progress with strength and size was when I purposefully stopped all the cardio for a couple of years and simultaneously ate like a horse! Unfortunately, this definitely came at a high fitness cost which I deemed unacceptable. I've since struggled to combine running and sprinting (which I feel is non-negotiable not just for fitness but for survivability) with lifting weights, which I deem just as essential.

Going back to the efficacy of running, I feel this article says it better than I can;

Sample quote;
'Endurance is key to surviving the apocalypse. Being able to travel far, fast, and on little fuel could be the difference between making it out of a crowded cannibalistic city and watching your stomach skin get turned into a lampshade by a depraved, diseased roommate.'
