I am currently pursuing both weightlifting (mainly to look good) and running with the goal of completing a marathon at the end of 2014. I know it would be better to focus on one thing, but I enjoy both and am willing to accept slower progress than if I focused entirely on one.
I’m also coming off a year during which I went from 108 to 88kg so I tend to watch what I eat quite a lot and generally avoid carbs. My current weekly training involves 2 heavy sessions (upper / lower), two light sessions (shoulder & bicep, chest & back, split due to time constraints), one short fast run and one long slow run.
Now I know that as my long run extends beyond the 10k, I will have to increase my carb intake, even if I want to continue losing body fat. Now my question is: do I eat carbs after running or after weight training? Or doesn’t it matter.
Many thanks to anyone who has experience with this!
