If by great conversation you mean great arguments, those dreams of yours will come true here at T-Nation.
Anyways, if your gonna claim your a hard gainer, I’m gonna agree with prof X and say that you should not divulge your love of running. Google some people who made it to the top as far as marathon runners go and tell me that’s the physique you desire… If that’s not the case, you most likely want to be a bodybuilder, you want to look like that ripped muscular physique of whatever idol satisfies that vain image we all have of our perfect body.
All of that running your doing is depleting the hormones you need to build the body you actually want. It may feel good with that runners high, your pores open sweating your balls off on the treadmill or pavement but you can accomplish the same exact feeling with an all out 45 minute session of bodybuilding at it hardest and finest while actually getting the body of your dreams.
