    Long distance running and muscle


    It's about to start training for a half marathon, was just wondering will supplementing with BCAA kinda stop muscle loss, and is it still possible to build muscle?? I will still be in a calorie surplus.

    Depends on your running history.
    If you have run before, training for a half marathon should not subject you to stresses that are totally out of your comfort zone.
    If you have not, then ramping up for a half will probably hit you harder.
    BCAA's are a good idea, but won't stop muscle loss.
    And I wouldn't plan on gaining. I am happy if I can mostly maintain in race season

    I'm not gonna be training to the extreme, like 1 or 2 runs a week, the half marathon is just for fun, and I'm going to be eating a lot?

    In that case, I wouldn't worry about muscle wasting--but I still would not plan on trying to gain until afterwards. Best to focus on one goal at a time.
    BCAA's are a good idea regardless
