I’ve been working on slimming up for the summer and seeing as I don’t have the bread to buy myself one of those elliptical bike dohickies or the like, I’ve been doing some good old fashioned running for cardio. This is the first time I’ve ran consistently in my life and over the past month I’ve worked up to about 15 miles a week at a 7.5 mile a minute pace. Well, as expected I’m slimming up, but to my surprise, my squat pundages have also been kicked up several notches. So, what’s the dillio? Has anybody else had this happen? Is it just because I’m working my legs differently with the running or does the running cause some sort of horomone change, or what? I sure do like getting stronger from this cardio, but it just don’t make sense.
