My main goal is to lose body fat and gain lean muscle. So far I've been lifting weights at the gym 3 days a week. How do I work cardio in? I know it's a good idea to run about 30 minutes after lifting weights, but I haven't done that yet. Probably a bad thing too not doing cardio, I know. However, I also HATE and I mean HATE tread mills. I MUCH prefer running outside at a park or at the beach, it's soo much better. I read somewhere that running long distances can actually hurt you if you're working out, but I think that might have just been for strength training. Or does it relate to what I'm doing? I'm planning on lifting weights 3 days a week and running 5-6 miles 3 days a week (I would run on the days I do NOT lift). Is that a good idea? Too many miles? Any input? Thanks!
