I have a question maybe someone here would be able to answer, is it possible to be a ultra distance runner and still be able to maintain a good aesthetic physique. I started running about a year and a half ago just to get fit and the running bug has bitten so I am planning on running Comrades in 2018 and I plan on doing other ultra distance races as well. Now the general look of an ultra runner is super skinny.
I definitely do not want to get to that look, I want to look nice and ripped (not there yet, still have some belly fat that needs to disappear) but is it possible to keep doing this much cardio and still keep building muscle?
Any input would be great.
