hey, at the beginning of this year i decided to stop running and bulk up. I used to run alot, middle distance running in track, but have stopped and chose to “get big.” I used to have lungs of a marathoner, but now i feel i get sluggish real real fast. Like today when i was playing a game of basketball, i was out of breath easy and didnt play well at all. I felt slow.
I used to be fast and really active, but what i did recently was stop the running, and concentrate on lifting and playing ball once a week or so. Where i used to run 5 days a week. Ive stopped running at the beginning of the year. It didnt seem to affect me much, but now im trying to gain weight by eating more food.
I was wondering if its just because ive stopped running and focused on lifting, or cuz my diet changed. Im trying to get my EFA’s with just a few capsules of flaxseed oil and fish oil. Im trying to eat more food, mostly clean, with no real junk food. Is this just the transition phase of going from super runner to lifting, or am i doing something wrong?
